Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
There are times, when troubles and the evils of this world, overwhelm me. I feel helpless. When I go to the Father in prayer, I am unable to even form the words that are needed. Praise the Lord Christ Jesus, He reminds me that it is in my weakness, that He is Strong… His Spirit, our Helper, the precious Holy Ghost, takes over and whether my words are ‘elegant’ or not, it does not matter! GLORY TO GOD! I have a version of Amazing Grace on my ipod that I adore. It is off the 25 Best Celtic Favorites CD, but I do not know who the artist is. I searched today, to try and find the information I needed, so that I could share that particular version with you, to no avail. However, I did find this version, and it is very nice. May our Lord God bless and keep each of you, in His powerful Wisdom and Grace, AMEN!
Celtic Woman – Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace was written by John Newton, an Englishmen who did not believe in God, he served in the Royal Navy and was active in the slave trade. One night a terrible storm battered the ship he was on, he thought his fate was certain death but in an act of desperation he prayed to God to stop the storm, shortly after the seas quietened and the storm passed. John became a Christian and spent the rest of his days studying the Bible and spreading the Word of God, he was also one of the first Englishmen to support the abolition of the slave trade. (The history of this song is powerful… do a search for a deeper appreciation!)
