The Spirit helps us pray. Without the feelings and words from the Spirit it is really hard to pray. Where is an easy place to get Spirit words? The Bible is in-spirited by God. So the words in the Bible turned into prayer are wonderful prayer words. And those words from the Bible are full of Spirit.
Someone once said that Prayer is an impossible task without the Holy Spirit.
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Sometimes we are ignorant of what kind of prayer or the exact words we should pray. But the Spirit helps us to pray. The best Bible verse for this is Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Sometimes prayers are just feelings with no words or it’s hard to figure out what the words need to be. So the Spirit helps us to pray because we are weak and do not know what to pray. So let the Spirit help us pray.
The next verse tells us that His prayer is according to the will of God. Romans 8:27 He who searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
then verse 29 tells us what is the will of God, that is that we would be confirmed to the image of Christ. Romans 8:29 For whom He foreknew, He predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He would be the firstborn among many brethren.
Look at Romans 8:27 And He who searches the hearts knows the Spirit’s mind-set, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
The Spirit is our prayer helper, sometime we just need to pray, but what are the words, what is the burden. Well the Spirit knows. This is of great encouragement for us mortal fallen human beings.
