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

|What is the most difficult problem you have ever faced? Even the most mentally tough LEO will at times
face such incredible circumstances that it is difficult to go on. It may come in the form of severe marital
problems, death of a family member or close friend, finances spiraling out of control, or a number of other
things. Then add to that the day to day experiences of law enforcement and it can create a very
unpleasant recipe. During times of great trial, our first instinct should be to drop to our knees and seek
our Heavenly Father's help; but what if the pressure is so intense that we don't even know how to pray?
Thankfully, we can learn from today's text that we don't have to know what to say or ask for in prayer.
Each child of God has the Holy Spirit living within them, and the Bible says that He "helps with our
infirmities" and He "makes intercession for us". Let's look a little closer at what that means. First of all in
helping with our infirmities, He gives us strength and consolation to sustain us through our weaknesses and
times of great trial. Next, the Bible also says that He "makes intercession for us with groanings which
cannot be uttered". This is awesome news, because He actually helps us with our prayers by interceding for
us and expressing what is in our deepest inexpressible emotions. "He searches our hearts", so that He knows
our innermost thoughts and burdens, and provides the help we didn't even know how to ask for! What an
Yes, God expects us to come to Him and ask for what we need, but we can also rest in the fact that for
God to understand what we are facing, it doesn't mean that we have to pray some fancy well prepared
prayer that outlines everything we need. Whatever you are facing or will face, remember, even if you don't
know what to say, just bow in humble submission before your Father with your confidence in Him, and let the
Holy Spirit assist you in prayer, and intercede for you.
