Daily Devotional- Parenting

Day 29
26 And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.27 And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.


Do you ever have trouble praying? Most of us do. This passage tells us God is fully aware of our weakness in this respect. The great news is that the Spirit works to make our real needs known to God the Father.

The Spirit uses "groans that words cannot express" to present these needs to God. Like a married couple that can finish each other's sentences, God knows exactly what the Spirit is requesting on our behalf. What a relief to know that the Spirit of God is supplementing our feeble prayers!

If you have trouble with prayer, take heart. The Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead is praying for you.
