There's a process

After Romans 8:26-30

There’s a process involved,
even if we think it’s all
spontaneity. It begins
with weakness, ours;
weakness so profound
that we’re at a loss
to know even what
to pray for.

But then, and next, 
the groaning,
the groaning too deep
for words, the sign
of intercession,
of help, the sound
of wind and fire
searching, seeking,
ferreting out
the hearts of weakness.

And so: our prayers are made.
And so: our prayers are heard.
