Praying Holy Spirit

One of the ways that the Holy Spirit works in the life of a believer in Christ is described in Romans 8:26&27. These wonderful verses tell us: "The Spirit also joins to help in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with unspoken groanings. And He who searches the hearts knows the Spirit's mind-set, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God." 

Do you ever feel weak? Do you ever feel the need to pray for someone or about something but never seem to know how to pray? The great news found in the verses above is that when those times come, and they will, the Spirit prays on our behalf. We are weak but He is strong. He intercedes with unspoken groanings. We still don't know the words to pray but thanks be to God that the Spirit does. We still don't know the person's greatest need but the Spirit does.

How? How does the Spirit know how to pray on our behalf? The easy answer is because the Spirit is God. Yet, the verses above tell us that the Spirit always prays "for the saints according to the will of God. He brings our will into conformity to the will of God the Father in our prayers. This is the way God accomplishes His will in our lives for His glory.
