“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 with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.” Romans 8:26-27
If you’re like me, you have often felt that your prayers were faltering and weak at best, totally inadequate to even express the depth of your needs. But these verses aren’t talking about our weak and human prayers. These verses are talking about the Holy Spirit himself interceding for us.
No one knows better how to pray for us. No one knows better what we need. And we can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God the Father hears and answers the prayers of his own Spirit.
Don’t ask me to explain how the Trinity works here … I haven’t a clue, but I know it’s true: God himself is interceding for you and me – every day, every hour, every minute. And his prayers are powerful to save.
