But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.
We do not know what we ought to pray for,
but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit,
because the Spirit intercedes for God's people in accordance with the will of God.
These verses are so comforting.
In times that we do not know how to pray for what is on our minds, the Spirit intercedes. God knows our hearts always. The Spirit helps us in our weakness!
Prayer: Jesus, search our hearts, search our minds. When we cannot talk, speak for us. When we do not know what we ought to pray for, intercede according to your good and perfect will.
