Is the Holy Spirit praying for me?

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. Romans 8:26-27
            This passage in Romans gives us the clearest insight into what the Holy Spirit does inside us.  While monitoring all our desires, impulses and actions, the Spirit knows how to pray for us.  He sees the deep stuff, the dangerous stuff, the stuff that can ruin our lives and then prays hard for us, so hard the words are emotional cries to God, interceding for us, like a mediator.  The Spirit wants us to accomplish God’s will for our lives.
            Yes, the Spirit is praying for you, are you watching all the things He sees and praying for yourself?
