April 7: Back to Basics – What if I can’t pray?

We’ve talked a lot about prayer – but what if you’re feeling discouraged? You’ve prayed but never saw revival break out. You’ve prayed for years and haven’t seen an answer to prayer that you’ve begged God for. You’re not sure if you’re praying right. You feel depressed and don’t know what to do and some days don’t even feel like praying.

At times like these – be encouraged – the Holy Spirit of God is praying for you!

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Romans 8:26

This verse is a great encouragement – when we feel like we can’t even pray – or we don’t even know what to pray – the Spirit will intercede for us! But what will He pray for?

And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Romans 8:27

He will be praying for God’s Will for us? But isn’t that dangerous? What if God wants me to do something impossible – or something that will hurt me? We can let fears run rampant – or we can keep reading!

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

The Spirit is praying for God’s Will – which is good. Here’s a reminder from our good friends at Patch the Pirate:
