When you can't find words to pray, try this Scripture.
Be still, and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10 (KJV)
I spoke to a friend about my struggles to pray, and she shared with me an experience she had when her mother was in the hospital, fighting cancer. Molly told me that every day she would go to the chapel in the hospital.
When she got there, however, she found herself too afraid to pray. She couldn’t find the words. She didn’t even want to say, “Thy will be done.” “What if God’s will was to take my mother?” she said to me.“I couldn’t pray for that.”
