Groanings too Deep for Words
"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."
These words of truth bring so much comfort, assurance, and peace! To know that the Holy Spirit is interceding for me on my behalf "with groanings too deep for words" is a huge comfort. Only one who genuinely cares about someone would pray for someone in that way. How often do you or I pray for a friend with groaning to deep for words? Never! Yet the Spirit is interceding for me in this way. This is indeed, an unfathomable love! Furthermore, because the father and the Spirit are one, the father knows the mind of the Spirit and the Spirit knows the mind of the Father, therefore, the Spirit knows how to intercede for me according to the will of God. When I pray, I pray for what I desire or what I think is best, but the Spirit is praying for me with the knowledge of what IS best for me and what GOD desires for me.
