In the same way the Spirit also joins to help in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with unspoken groanings.
Sometimes you are just not sure what or how you should pray. Have you ever found yourself feeling as though you should pray, but not knowing how to pray? Maybe you’re not sure what God’s will is, or what your next step should be. Perhaps you are in such turmoil that the only prayer you can muster is “Jesus help me.”
Have you ever entered into prayer with a loss of words? Maybe you wondered if you are using the right words, or praying the right way.
I have great news for you. When you don’t know how to pray, or you don’t feel like you are praying correctly, God says, the Holy Spirit prays for you.
In your weakest times, when you just don’t know how to pray, the Holy Spirit, who knows your heart, takes your heart cry and translates it to the Father.
This promise says the Spirit “intercedes” for us. That word means to come to the rescue or to stand between two parties and bring them together. The Holy Spirit stands between you and God. He takes your intent and brings it to the Father in ways we can never understand.
When you don’t know what to pray, or you don’t know how to pray, or just can’t get the words out, you have the confidence that the Holy Spirit is praying on your behalf. He is taking the cry of your heart and bringing it to God the Father.
Read that promise one more time.

Confess this with me
When I don’t know how to pray,
God prays for me.
When I don’t know what to pray,
God prayers for me.
In my weakest moments,
The Holy Spirit is praying for me.
When all I can do is cry out to God,
The Holy Spirit knows my heart,
And brings my prayer to the Father.
Today, the Holy Spirit is helping me pray.
