When suffering silences me, I trust that the Lord will ask others to pray for me and my family and all who are hurting.
I’ve had a week straight out of Romans 8:26: “We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.” There are times the heart hurts so much it is mute.
Even so, I can still offer God what I have: my tears.
I can ask him to use my tears to water the seed of my faith, so that I grow closer to Christ instead of drawing away.
I can ask him to use my tears for good: to wash away someone else’s suffering.
