My Roses - PRAYER FOR PEACE AND THE NAMELESS LONGINGS OF MY HEART

Slide Image

"O My Father, I have moments of deep unrest -- moments when I know not what to ask by reason of the very excess of my wants. I have in these hours no words for Thee, no conscious prayers for Thee. My cry seems purely worldly; I want only the wings of a dove that I may flee away. Yet all the time Thou has accepted my unrest as a prayer. Thou has interpreted its cry for a dove's wings as a cry for Thee, Thou has received the nameless longings of my heart as the intercessions of Thy Spirit. They are not yet the intercessions of my spirit; I know not what to ask. But Thou knowest what I ask, O my God. Thou knowest the name of that need which lies beneath my speechless groan. Thou knowest that, because I am made in Thine image, I can find rest only in what gives rest to Thee; therefore Thou hast counted my unrest unto me for righteousness, and has called my groaning Thy Spirit's prayer.

Amen."

It is the not knowing what to pray for that is a problem for me too.  I want to go back to a time when we were happy, he was pain free, healthy active etc and I would never know this deep heartache until I became an old, old lady.  That is what I want...but what do I pray for?
