We can ask for success in this project or that venture, but is that really what God wants? Won’t his will be done whether or not we say those words? But here we are promised that our prayers are just one end of an elaborate spiritual process. The Spirit translates our weak requests into an inexpressible language of passion and petition. So if you feel that you’re just not speaking God’s language, you’re right. But maybe language isn’t necessary. Send some heartfelt groans in the Spirit’s direction and see what happens.

But the New Testament clearly says that we can never deserve God’s forgiveness. It’s a free gift of God’s grace. Yet there’s a deep wisdom in this promise. When we open our hearts to forgive others, we’re more open to receive God’s grace. Perhaps you know people who are constantly keeping score, holding grudges against all who have wronged them.
MATTHEW 5:5 It’s a familiar movie scene: the greedy family gathering for the reading of the rich man’s will. They’re shocked when the entire estate goes to… the humble housekeeper. That’s the picture Jesus offers. In a world that prizes toughness, ambition, reaching for what you want, and knocking everyone else out of the way, the earth will be inherited by… the meek. These are the people who don’t force their will upon others. They put others first. They don’t grab; they give. You might feel humbled by your financial circumstances.
