The Eloquence of Groans...




God hears our hearts
No fluent art
of speech required where
He intercedes
and heeds the groaning pleas
we utter there

Sometimes we know not
how to pray
where reason cannot reach
when godless verdict
has its say
and horror stuns our speech

But, woe to pride
The One who died
to pay sin’s debt we owed
makes no mistake;
Forbid we shake
a fist at loving God

…who hears our hearts;
Mercy imparts
A kind and listening ear
when our prayer
is but a groan
embodied in a tear

Rom.8;26
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: 
for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: 
but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us 
with groanings which cannot be uttered.
