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.
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 8:26-27
The Spirit has much to do with acceptable prayer,
and His work in prayer is too much neglected.
He enlightens the mind to see its wants,
softens the heart to feel them,
quickens our desires after suitable supplies,
gives clear views of God’s power, wisdom,
and grace to relieve us,
and stirs up that confidence in His truth
which excludes all wavering.
Prayer is, therefore, a wonderful thing.
In every acceptable prayer the whole trinity is concerned.
