“And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.” – Romans 8:27 NIV
Prayer is directed to God, not directing God.
Pastor David Guzik comments on the above verse saying, “The Holy Spirit’s help in intercession is perfect because He searches the hearts of those whom He helps, and He is able to guide our prayers according to the will of God.” As you pray this week, try one simple thing:
– Spend a minute in silence and ask God what is on His heart today.
Perhaps He will impress upon your mind a person or situation that you would not have otherwise prayed for. Allow space to listen and even when you don’t have the words to pray, trust the Holy Spirit to be interceding in the places you need it most!
