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.Romans 8:26
There are groans that I cannot put into words when words fail. Sometimes it is a response to pain. You don’t have or need words when you experience terrible pain. Sometimes it is to express powerful longing. You know you want something, but you don’t know how to describe your desire. Other times our desires are so strong that words fail us completely. At times you just have an idea or a feeling, and you cannot express what you mean to say. You don’t know how to put it into words that someone could truly understand.
For the Father, all of this is good conversation! Because of His wisdom and the presence of the Holy Spirit, He knows what those groans mean every time. He has heard your incoherent ramblings. He will respond. Ramble and groan away. He knows exactly what you mean to say.
