“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” (Romans 8:26–27, NKJV)
Fear not to believe that I will redeem the past, My child. You are My instrument as you let Me pray through you when you do not know how to pray for him. You are my pipe-line when you surrender your will to be used by Me to bring Love into his despondency. He feels that life is hopeless because he does not know how to trust My Grace at work in these painful circumstances. He has so long depended on crutches – people, nicotine, alcohol, drugs – to sustain him. They have all failed him. My grace is sufficient – be he has to see you witness of forgiving Love when he knows that he does not deserve it. He has to accept the Reality of My Love as he faces the reality that you have forgiven him – but you do not condone what he has done to his body and to your relationship.
