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 with groans that words cannot express.
Romans 8:26 (NIV)
Have you ever had anyone intercede for you? Sometimes when you are in situation and because of the circumstances, someone else is a better choice to represent your needs. Perhaps a lawyer, customer service representative, a trusted friend or medical professional? When they are qualified and earnest, it is a beautiful thing to watch. And we need help. Here we are, trying to live our life, one person amongst billions of others. We have great needs but who will help us? Who can understand our plight? Who would care enough for us to do something? Who would have the power to effect any change? Paul tells us who. He writes, “The Spirit helps us in our weakness.” Thank God the Father for His Holy Spirit. He is the one who intercedes for our weaknesses and needs in this life. Even when we don’t know how to pray, the Holy Spirit passionately groans and pleads our case to God the Father. What compassion, what mercy. Even now come to the Holy Spirit with your hidden secrets, your most perplexing problems, your most heinous sins, your deepest need. When you do, He will intercede, and when He does, He will bring peace and deep joy to your heart.
Dear Holy Spirit, I come to You just as I am, desperate and needy for Your touch. You know my situation. I need You to intercede for me to God the Father. To Him, who can do all things. To Him, who is all love and all power. Dear Holy Spirit, I give You control of my life. Guide me, direct me, fill me with Your peace and power. I pray this in Jesus’ name.
