Romans 8:26-28  In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (NIV)

As my wife is adept at interpreting my grunts more clearly than the words I speak, so the Spirit of God is able to interpret my groans more clearly than any words I could use to express my deepest prayerful desires.

The Spirit of God takes my impoverished utterance, grunts, and groans and turns them into clear communication aligned with the very will of God who seeks my highest good in all things at all times.

How in the world does anything ultimately good come out of my prayer life? It is because of this: God knows more of what I need than I do.

He takes what I seek
and what I say
and improves my requests
in every way

Here is one of my favorite prayers to pray: Our Father, you know better what I need than I do. Align my desires with yours. Empower me to want what you want when you want it for me. I am fully confident that I will never live in want because of your good and kind provision at all times and in every way.

God works all of my prayers to the good by doing more and better than what I think I want or need. His kind No is always replaced with a Greater Yes.

Not only does God hear and answer our prayers, he answers them better than we pray them.

I will pray better prayers that God will improve until they achieve his best.

Our Father, you know better what I need than I do. Align my desires with yours. Empower me to want what you want when you want it for me. I am fully confident that I will never live in want because of your good and kind provision at all times and in every way. Amen.
