Even Jesus prayed without words

Mark 7:34 (NKJV) “Then, looking up to heaven, He [Jesus] sighed, and said to him, ‘Ephphatha,’ that is, ‘Be opened.'”

Here, long before Paul’s teaching that when we do not know what to pray, that the Holy Spirit prays for us in moans that we cannot understand (Romans 8:26), Jesus Himself utters a wordless prayer – only a sigh in fact.

This does not mean that He did not know what to pray (as implied in Paul’s teaching). But be of good cheer that when you indeed do not know what to pray, wordless sighs are sufficient.

PS – Jesus’ wordless sigh was sufficient enough even to heal
