Painted Fire

 

Painted Fire impasto

Look, as a painted man is no man, and as painted fire is no fire, so a cold prayer is no prayer. -Thomas Brooks

 The Spirit of God not only maintains this hope within us,

but helps us in our present limitations.

For example, we do not know how to pray worthily as sons of God,

but his Spirit within us is actually praying for us

in those agonizing longings which never find words.

And God who knows the heart’s secrets understands, of course,

the Spirit’s intention as he prays for those who love God.

(Romans 8:26-27 Phillips)
