The Spirit Intercedes
Woman: When I sit down to pray, my mind just goes blank! I know there are things that I need to be praying for, but I can never remember what.
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: I think we’ve all been there. Even the apostle Paul said, “We do not know how to pray as we ought” (Rom. 8:26). He realized that he needed help in knowing how to pray according to the will of God. But he also realized that God had met that need by giving the Holy Spirit.
So Paul wrote, “The Spirit helps us in our weakness. . . . [He] intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will” (vv. 26-27).
Woman: Holy Spirit, I don’t know the will of the Father in this area. I don’t know what to pray. But the Bible says that You’ll help me in my weakness and that You’re going to intercede for me. Would You please do that now?
