Float Your Boat Praying

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. - (Romans.8:28). 

Let's face it, we don't always know how to pray, or for what to pray.
That's the very reason Romans 8:26 says the Holy Spirit prays the
will of God through us. When our intellectual prayers are done, we
must be willing to finish by praying "in the Spirit."

During World War II, the British Press Association reported that a
British submarine lay disabled on the ocean floor. After two days,
all hope of raising her was abandoned. On orders of the captain, the
crew began to sing a hymn:

"Abide with me! Fast falls the eventide. The darkness deepens.
Lord, abide with me, when other helpers fail and comforts flee.
Help of the helpless, Oh, abide with me!"

While everyone was praying, the captain explained to the men that
they did not have long to live. There was no hope of outside aid, he
said, because the searchers did not know the vessel's exact position.

Sedative pills were distributed to the men to quiet their nerves. One
sailor was affected more quickly than the others, and he fainted. As
he fell, he hit against a piece of equipment loosening the sub's
jammed surfacing mechanism. The submarine floated to the surface and the crew was able to make their way home safely. (from the Gospel Herald).

"Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes
intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He
who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is,
because He makes intercession for the saints ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose" (Rom. 8:26-28).

Prayer:- "Our Loving Heavenly Father,Thank you for the Comforter that you have given to us to help in our Weakness. We know that "praying in the Spirit" is not "sub-standard," but is always God's way
to...float your boat. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer.
Gratefully, In Jesus Mighty Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.
