Dear God...National Day of Prayer 2013

Dear God,

Sometimes our words fail to express what our soul really feels. But our God-given translator, the spirit within us, communicates with your Spirit who intercedes on our behalf!

Because of this, we are confident in your ability to see, hear, and help us in our time of need.  Thank you for everyday miracles and unexplained coincidences that assure us that you are present in our lives and listening to what we say and are unable to say.

Amen.
