Memorization Monday - Romans 8:27

Romans 8:27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

The larger context of this verse tells us that we don't know how to pray as we should. It doesn't say sometimes we don't know how to pray. It says that we don't know how to pray and therefore the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be uttered. That means it is so deep inside that these prayers don't even reach the mouth. Today's verse continues that thought and lets us know that as God listens, he knows the mind of the Spirit. So even when our prayers are shallow or not on target as far as the will of God is concerned, the Spirit is praying for us according to the will of God and that is what God the Father hears.
