Day 5 - The Spirit’s Ministry of Intercession

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Romans 8:26-27 (NIV)

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

Reflection:

Sometimes when tragedy strikes or in moments of extreme joy, we just don’t know what to say. Words can’t describe the sorrow or elation that we are feeling at that moment. So it is in prayer and intercession. We don’t know how to pray or even what to pray for. The Spirit, like Jesus, intercedes for us through wordless groans. The Spirit, who is with us, and in us, is interceding for us. Even the faintest, wordless groaning prayers of the Spirit can be heard by the Father and answered in order to accomplish His will.

Responding to the Transmission:

As we lift up prayers today, let us ask for the filling of the Holy Spirit. Let’s go deeper in prayer, surrendering to the Spirit, who is in us, as He intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. Let’s be taken into wordless groans and tears … for His glory in this generation!
