One of the most countercultural aspects of Christianity is the value Scripture places on weakness over strength. Alistair Begg helps us to understand the God-ordained place of weakness in a believer’s life, both in general and as it relates specifically to prayer. As we humbly depend on God for grace and guidance, the Holy Spirit helps us to face life’s hardships and inspires us to pray according to His will.
26Likewise 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. 27And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because7 the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
