# 41 - Sigh and Cry
Roman 8 suggests that, in the weakness of deep sorrow and heavy burdens, we don’t know how to pray, but that nevertheless through our sighs and tears the Spirit intercedes for us. And our painful, wordless prayers are heard in heaven. It is ok to sigh and cry. It is also ok to visit one in need of prayer and simply sigh and cry with them. One day after a small boy’s grandmother died, he told his mother that he had just come from helping his grandpa cry.
