“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” (Romans 8:26)
There are those moments, as the above verse reminds us, when we don’t know what to pray, or even have the ability put words to our needs, to frame our feelings in sentences and all we are left with are groans. Yes prayer is a “hotline” to heaven, a resource to bring Heaven’s power to bear on our needs. But what about when we can’t even pray? It is at those moments the Holy Spirit enters into the process and offers our prayers for us. He frames our cries in words that are fit for God’s ears. He offers prayers that fully capture our heartache. What blessing!
But let’s take this to a higher level, our God is so gracious to hear us and answer our prayers that we have never really prayed. The Holy Spirit has even done the praying for us. God so wants to have intimate fellowship with us, He is so eager to hear our requests and so eager to answer prayer that He can’t wait for us to turn our heart toward Him. He is so desirous of us, that He will even complete the process of prayer for us. What blessing!
So, if He is so anxious to hear from you, make sure you do. He is waiting. What blessing!
