Heavenly Father, there have been many times when I have sat down to pray without a single idea where to start, no phrase in my head, no Bible verse that is relevant to the situation I am in, and yet every day You seem to know what is on my heart, what I am searching for, what I want to say to You
 
Perhaps this is where Your Holy Spirit intercedes for us in wordless groans, which somehow translate into something meaningful that I can understand? In our heart-to-heart conversation, while I pray and You pray for me by Your Spirit, and Jesus prays at the right hand side of God the Father, we connect and find the right words
 
Sometimes people ask a question and we do not know the answer and we respond, "search me!" This is the response of King David, "Search me O God, and know my heart, know all my thoughts and my ways, test me and see if there is any offence in me. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right Spirit within me. Cast me not away from Your presence O God, take not Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of Your Salvation. Renew a right Spirit within me"
 
Every day new mercies I see. You are the God of second chances, and third, fourth, fifth... Thank You that Jesus is always the same, yesterday, today and forever. My Rock, my Redeemer, my Saviour, my King, my Best Friend. I owe everything to You, even the air I breathe and every Good Word I say or think. I love You Lord, and I lift my voice to worship You, O my soul rejoice. Amen
