What are we supposed to do when we don't know what to pray? Just make it up? That doesn't seem sincere. Not say anything at all? That doesn't feel right. Today, we share five things you can do when you find yourself at a loss for words when it's time to pray.

Key Takeaways
• Scripture can serve as the outline or framework for your prayer, thus giving you words to pray that you may not have had otherwise.
• God knows the deepest longings of our hearts that our mouths sometimes can't formulate the words to say.
• Sometimes we need help, and it's okay to allow someone else to give us their strength.
