And I believe that is true for us today as well. It is God’s presence within me, the Holy Spirit, that makes me different from my neighbors and co-workers. And that is a distinguishing mark that should be evident to those around me who are not a part of God’s kingdom. They should be able to see God at work within us.
I express my heart and mind in words that are so often inadequate to express my thoughts. But I do not have to worry about the inadequacy of my words. The Holy Spirit is bringing my petitions to the Father in a very adequate fashion. Thanks to the Holy Spirit, the sufficiency of my prayer is not dependent on my own limited expression.
