Better Than Hamburger Helper

The Watered Soul: Better Than Hamburger Helper

Mar 7, 2011

Better Than Hamburger Helper

Looking for a way to dress up that lone package of ground beef? General Mills offers individuals a quick and easy way to present that ground beef in a more tasty manner. Wikipedia states that the contents of the box are combined with02-11-10 025 browned hamburger meat, water, and milk (something the cook has to have on a hand already) to create a complete dish.

In the same way, God has given the believer a prayer helper—the Spirit. When we combine the Spirit with our weaknesses and willingness to pray, we have a prayer that is complete and free of selfish ambition and manipulation. The Spirit knows the mind and heart of the Father and only prays according to His perfect will.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. Romans 8:26 NIV

You've made me hungry...to pray ... to eat. Think I'll make Hamburger Helper my last meat meal before Lent begins.

Isn't it awesome that the Holy Spirit prays for us and through us even when we don't know exactly what to say or do (which is most of the time, these days, for me!)

I really like your recipe for prayer: Spirit, weakness, willingness to pray. Our prayer pantry should never be without any of these.

Pleasure to meet you & hope you'll stop by again soon.Bluebutterfly may we each have a renewed thirst and hunger for Him. Yvonne thank you. Kim the best helping hand we could ever have ;)Karen yes it is. God knew just want we would need and He provided the solution. Joanney love the idea of prayer pantry.

Hi Wanda,
Great thought for the day. It's amazing to me how God uses everyday activities or fixins to teach us about the spirit realm. It's those little things that give us just the right food for thought and food for the spirit.

God Bless.

How creative you are Wanda! Yes, we need to be selective about our ingredients and what we hope for the outcome~ xXx
