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."
Have you ever gone to God in prayer and found yourself not being able to utter a word? You were so burdened down that all you could do was cry? I have certainly done that.
This verse gives me the assurance that God knows what we're crying about. God understands those tears and the cry of our heart. I'm so thankful for that. God tells us that when we can't say a word that the Holy Spirit knows and makes intercession for us. He takes that request and burden of our heart to the throne of God for us. I like that!! Don't you?
So the next time you are so burdened about that loved one...or are so broken about something in your life and you can't get a word out for your crying...just know that the Holy Spirit is taking that thing to God for you. I believe that those prayers are the most precious to God because it testifies of a broken heart and a broken spirit.
I've known that He knew what I was praying for when I couldn't even say a word...but He reminded me of this truth....and it blessed me. I know this post is short but it blessed me so much I just couldn't help but encourage you with it too.
