Rev. Paul M. Turner

Prayers & Praises

LET US PRAY: Loving God, we are reminded in the Bible that when we find it difficult to pray the “Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words” (Romans 8:26). Thank you for this treasure hidden in these words of Scripture. When we experience moments in life when we are exhausted by care, ground down by constant negativity, or know that words are not enough to heal the pain, help us to trust in your Holy Spirit. Help us to cease from constant busyness, quiet our minds, and silence our tongues, so that we might hear the “sighs too deep for words” and know again the comfort of your love. Hear these our prayers and praises Lord! Amen
