“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. 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.”

When you go to pray, the devil is going to level all of the artillery of Hell against you because he does not want you to pray. Our indifference and ignorance and his interference sometimes line up against us and then we say, “Well, we’re not very good at prayer.” We like to talk about prayer and sing about prayer, but many of us really do not have a satisfying, fulfilling prayer life.
Now what is the answer? The answer is to find that God has given us an Ally, an asset, a helper, an encourager, and He is the Holy Spirit. And this passage of Scripture says, “Likewise, the Spirit also helps us in our weaknesses.” On our own, we will never have a full prayer life. But God has not left us on our own. He has given us a helper who is with us every day and fills up the areas where we are weak.
Take time today to pray. Focus on the Holy Spirit as the Helper who fills the weaknesses in you and leads you to pray as you ought.
