Behind the scenes

“The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit intercedes for us… And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him” Romans 8:26-28 (NIV)
There are times that we think that putting the exact correct prayer together gets God to answer. But He isn’t looking for the perfect formula to take the opportunity to effect our daily lives.
A Christian leader once said, “Coincidences seem to happen when I pray”. That statement changed my life. It’s almost like God is working behind the scenes for those who are at least trying. Now I can do that. Putting together perfect prayers isn’t easy for me, but I can talk to Him as much as possible in my own words and thoughts.
Webster defines coincidence as “the occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident but seem to have some connection”. An example would be an old friend calling, out of the blue, on the exact day that I was going to make an unwise decision.
Heavenly Father, I want to lean on You so that you can work behind the scenes to impact and fulfill my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
