2. The Holy Spirit Speaks through Prayer
Romans 8:26, “In certain ways we are weak, but the Spirit is here to help us. For example, when we don’t know what to pray for, the Spirit prays for us in ways that can’t be put into words."
Paul: “Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving.” Colossians 4:2
