When Speech Fails the Spirit Prays

When Speech Fails the Spirit Prays

Matthew 6:6; Romans 8:26–27; 1 John 5:14–15

There are sacred hours of the soul, in which we enter the presence-chamber of the Most High and gain some view of the infinite beauty of holiness, the infinite sacrifice of Christ, the infinite value of the soul, the infinite sorrow of banishment from God; and then we long, with a mighty longing, that salvation might come from God to the lost and perishing. And in those deepest moments speech fails, yet the Spirit prays.

Augustus Hopkins Strong (1836 – 1921)
