We do not know how to pray as we ought (Rom 8:18-27).  More is happening when we pray than we know or even can imagine.  Our prayers are mixed with the prayers of Heaven.  The Son intercedes for us at Abba’s right hand.  The intercession of the Spirit works in us to help us pray and then this Holy Dove carries our petition faster than light to the Throne.  Demonic forces are thwarted!  Grace comes down!  Strength arrives!

 “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:26-27 (NASB)
