The Holy Spirit Prays for You

Read

And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don't know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God's own will. Romans 8:26-27

Reflect

Several years ago I spoke with a man who was dying of cancer. He was physically and spiritually worn out. When I visited him I read a passage from Romans 8:26-27 that explains the Spirit prays for us when we can't find words to pray for ourselves. The next time I visited him, he asked, "Would you read that verse about the Spirit praying for me again? I need to hear that."

We all need to hear this truth. There will be times in your life when you cannot find the words to describe the cry of your heart. That's when the Spirit takes over.

Respond

Describe the depth and extent of the Spirit's prayers for you.
