Prayer of the Holy Spirit

Romans 8:26-27

“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.”

The death of my pastor – in the ER with my 12-year-old son near death with DKA – my wife, wheeled into the surgery room for cancer (13x) – the failure of a staff member – the death of a student from my youth group – acquaintances walking away from the faith – covid and its consequences – preaching or singing at the funeral of a friend; times when I went to pray and had nothing. The hurt was too bad. There are many other experiences in my life with the spirit living in me praying for me. The reality of Emmanuel “God with us.”
