Trust in God’s Help with Prayer

Through the act of prayer you can seek the heart and mind of God in your difficult situations. God gives us help and answers when we pray. He gives us this assurance in difficult times:

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weakness. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered… He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God (Romans 8:26-27).

In picturesque words we learn that God Himself gives us help… and hope! The Holy Spirit literally comes to our “rescue” in our trouble. He ministers to us by lending His helping hand in pleading and interceding to God in our behalf. In simple language, He groans and sighs for us in prayer.

What good news! When you don’t know what to pray for, how to pray, or what words to use, the Holy Spirit does! And He takes over and expresses your requests for you. He intercedes for you by appealing to the only Person who can help you—God Himself. The Spirit’s “groaning” or “sighing” in prayer to God the Father for you becomes effective intercession on your behalf.

Thank God that you are not left to your own resources to cope with your problems.
