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. (Romans 8:26-27, NIV)

I know I must pray, but O God, how can I pray at a time like this?
I have no words.
My heart aches for the innocent, and the not so innocent, for without regard—war is hell. I grieve for others and for myself. The disruption, the pain, the fear, are real. My mind rages against the evil, the injustice and the enemy.
I have no words.
But Jesus you are the Word and my help, and when I look upon your cross I know that you know my struggle and You understand (Heb. 4:16). So I trust in You and call upon Your mercy and Your grace—available when I need it most.
I know I must pray.
I have no words, but one—Jesus.
