The Interceding Spirit


Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. – Romans 8: 26

Have you ever thought to yourself, I don’t know how or what to pray? I don’t know how to word what I’m going through or feeling? Communicating to God what is happening in our lives is important, just as it is in any relationship. But, those times when our lives and feelings are too much, like when we are lost for words, or simply do not know how to pray about what is happening, can feel discouraging. This is one part of our lives where the Holy Spirit interacts with us. The Spirit says the words we cannot say in prayer. This sense of deep understanding is beautiful and purposeful, aligning with God’s character. We are never misunderstood or misrepresented by the Spirit. How beautiful is it, that the deep, painful, longing groans of the human soul are understood and interpreted by the Spirit in prayer. I am thankful the Spirit resides in me
