Praying in the right way
  • Romans 8:26-30
  • Psalm 13:4-6
  • Luke 13:22-30

The Psalmist cries out, ‘Lord our hope is in your mercy.’ Truly our hope is only the mercy of God because our Lord himself declared that the way to heaven is a narrow or difficult road. The first will be last and the last will be first. In a way, we may assume we are clean and good to make it to heaven, but we may be so wrong. How do we get to know our real state? It is only the Holy Spirit who reveals to us where we stand and our real status in the eyes of heaven. In the reading from Rom 8: 28 onwards the word says that the Spirit comes to our aid in our weakness for we do not know how to pray as we ought. This can be so true because often we assume that we know where we stand. We become blind to our sin and never know what to really pray for. Praying in tongues or in the Spirit brings out the right prayer that God wishes to hear. When we pray in tongues we bring the perfect need that God wishes us to be interceding for and the mercy of God saves and redeems us.

Abba Father, we pray for the gift of tongues that it will no longer remain a mystery to us but become a prayerful way to heaven – Amen.
