Sitting in church today, the pastor in discussing Romans 8 brought up the groanings and utterances of the Holy Spirit on our behalf when we simply don’t know what to pray. It reminded me of those times in my life where I prayed without words.
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.Romans 8:26
Those of us who can remember what a computer sounded like… The sound of a modem negotiating. Beeps and screams that the human ear can not discern or translate. My computer knew what it was saying, and the remote computer knew what it was saying, but I was clueless and just satisfied when the connection completed and my request was completed.
When I sobbed by myself at the failing of my marriage, or when my father passed, or many other times where I sobbed or screamed out loud. God knew my heart, he saw through everything at the surface to the Holy Spirit inside me and granted me peace. He answered my prayers, no words left my mouth but He knew. The Holy Spirit knew, translated those sobs and screams into prayer and spoke it on my behalf to the Father.
If you believe, if you need to pray but don’t know the words, God does. Through the intercession of the Holy Spirit, in your sobs, screams or even your silence, He hears you.
God bless ya.
