Many times in my life I have felt completely alone. I, alone, struggle with these thoughts and feelings and emotions. No one else has to go through this. Isolated in my pain, I turned inward. The crushing hurts of life weighed me down to the breaking point, and all that I had left was to cry out in anguish to the Creator.
Have you been there too? Maybe not that dramatic… but you too.
I finished my last personal bible study and started a new one on prayer. As I was studying Romans 8: 26-27 this thought struck me.
When we pray, we never pray alone.
The Holy Spirit prays with us. In our weakness, we don’t know what to pray. We cry out in heartache, confusion, or pain. We don’t know what we need or want sometimes, and the Holy Spirit prays for us according to the will of God.
Not only the Holy Spirit, Hebrews 7: 25 teaches us that Jesus also intercedes for us.
” Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.”
In the good times and the bad times we never pray alone.
The highest motives possible from the highest Beings possible are constantly reaching on our behalf the highest throne possible.
