“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.”
How many times have we set time aside to pray and after about 5 to 10 minutes, we’re repeating ourselves or we have nothing else to say? I often feel weak or worn out when I pray. I don’t have the stamina or the strength.
God longs for our weakness. He is there when we are weary. When we feel distant and defeated, He responds with closeness and compassion.
In our weakness, He is strength.
In our weariness, He is rest.
In our inadequacy, He is more than adequate.
In our prayer, He is our prayer warrior, our prayer partner, and our prayer advocate.
God, in His role as Holy Spirit prays for us. He intercedes with groans that cannot be expressed with words. He pours over us with sensitivity, sympathy and supplication. He is never weak or weary in His intercession.
Its often easier to tell others how to pray for us than actually praying ourselves.
Try this. Ask God to pray for you today and let Him know your challenges and concerns. Then, thank Him for praying for you.
He is there and He is in prayer.
