Welcome to the Be Fully Persuaded series! This week I’m sharing how God provides for us by giving us words to pray when we don’t know what to say.
Thank you for meeting me here every week to rejoice in God’s faithfulness to keep His promises and in His creative provision for every area of our lives. I pray that we are all encouraged to stand strong in our faith and that God will make Romans 4:20-21 a reality for all of us as we focus on Him and His Word:
Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
Romans 4:20-21 (NIV)
Words for My Groans
Last week I mentioned that Princess Roo might have to go back on immunoglobulin infusions to support her immune system and bring her antibody levels up to where they need to be. I was disappointed, but I thought I was okay with everything. Then yesterday I got the phone call from the immunologist’s office to tell me that we’re moving forward with the infusions. I began making calls to the insurance company to start paperwork. And I got really down.
I’m not sure why I am struggling. We’ve been here before. I knew it was a possibility that we would have to go back on infusions after testing. I’m very grateful that we didn’t have to go back on them immediately, but here we are, needing them again. I guess I was hoping we would never need them again.
Because I am uncertain exactly what I’m feeling and why, I have had a hard time praying about it. But the day before I got that phone call, a friend sent me a text that read:
look up worn by tenth avenue north
I did. It touched me deeply, and I shared it with some friends I thought would appreciate it. The song ministered to them too.
As I struggled to put my feelings into words and deal with these unexpected emotions over this situation, the words of the song came back to me, and I realized that those lyrics are my prayer for this situation. God, in His faithfulness, had provided them to me twenty-four hours before I needed them.
This is my prayer. I’m posting the YouTube video I’ve been watching in case you need it too.
What song has God used to put words to your needs so you can pray about them?
