“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.”Romans 8:26 NKJV
As human beings we are limited in our understanding. We cannot see beyond today. Our vision and our understanding is limited to today. But God sees the beginning from the end. He stands outside of time and we have been given the Holy Spirit as our helper and our aide.
It is the Holy Spirit who leads and guides us into all truth. It is the Holy Spirit who leads us in the place of intercession. In the book of Ephesians the apostle Paul wrote of praying in the Spirit on all occasions.
When we pray in the Spirit we pray as the Spirit leads. We pray in an unknown tongue when we pray in the Spirit. Praying in the Spirit is powerful because when we pray in the Spirit we pray according to the perfect will of God.
Prayer is one of the most powerful things God has given us on this earth. When we faithfully pray there is much that is accomplished in the spiritual realm. The effectiveness of prayer is not based on how we feel, it is based on the truth of God’s word. Let us simply be faithful to pray.
