Praying in the Spirit

“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.”

(Romans 8:26-27)

Prayer is the easiest thing in the world. Prayer is the hardest thing in the world. Children pray and great prayer warriors struggle. It is easy to talk about prayer but much harder to actually pray.

Prayer is the business of heaven, so we need heaven’s help. Our Heavenly Father who loves us has given us a helper, the Holy Spirit himself. We can look to and trust the Spirit as we pray knowing he will express our hearts to the Father according to his will. This knowledge frees us to pray with abandon.
