There are times, O God, when we struggle to find the words to pray to you. We know we are grateful, penitent and in need of your presence, but we can’t seem to find the way to express them. May we know that we don’t have to speak aloud in order for you to hear us and know our needs. Let us know that sometimes our lack of clarity is just giving us the time we need in order to fully express ourselves and know our true needs. Help us to be patient and let your Spirit work within us now and every day. Amen.
