God is praying to God for you.

During February, we have been reading Romans 8 each night after supper.  I highly recommend this practice; it has really helped me meditate on the Word and see new things every night.  I’ve also semi-memorized the chapter by now.

These promises never get old and really thrill me when I consider them:

Romans 8: 26-27 “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.  And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.”

Romans 8:34b ” . . . Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.”

When I don’t know what to say, or when I feel like my prayers aren’t even any good, it’s the best comfort to remember that two members of the Trinity are praying to the Father for my benefit.  What a promise!
