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.
Romans 8:26 (NLT)
Have you ever groaned for someone? I think of the times I have interceded with God for my children. I was so concerned and deeply moved that I would literally groan my requests to God. I was praying with deep intent and emotion. I was interceding out of love and concern. I was praying from the heart. This, however, is just a small measure of the way the Holy Spirit intercedes for us. Paul shares that the Holy Spirit helps us with our weaknesses by interceding with God in ways we will never know about. His groaning on our behalf is so intense that it cannot even be expressed in human language. What concern, what love, what power the Holy Spirit expresses for us. Today, join the Holy Spirit in His intercession for you. Tell Him your concerns. Share with Him your needs, your deepest longings. Then take comfort knowing that the Holy Spirit is interceding on your behalf.
Dear Father, thank You for the gift of Your Holy Spirit. Thank You that even when I don’t know how to pray, Your Spirit intercedes for me. Bless You, Lord, for Your deep love and concern for me.
