Holy Spirit

Romans 8:27 (NKJV)

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.

Song Of The Day

Bible Commentary

Romans 8:27 is a Bible verse in the New Testament that tells us the Holy Spirit prays for believers according to God’s will.

If you could choose just one person to pray for you, who would it be? No matter how honored or distinguished that person is to you, they couldn’t possibly compare to the Holy Spirit!

Romans 8:27 says the Holy Spirit makes intercession for the saints. “Intercession” is defined like this: an interceding; mediation or prayer in behalf of another.


Let’s take a look at the Greek meaning for "saints," which is: sacred (physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated). Of course, none of us is pure on our own, but with the covering of the blood of Jesus, we are.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are a saint—physically pure and morally blameless. God sees you through the filter of the blood of Christ.

That’s cause enough to rejoice, but there is more. The Holy Spirit prays for you according to God’s will. If no person on earth prayed for you, there is no cause for concern because the Holy Spirit does. Hallelujah!

Unlocking the Truth - Lining Up

So what is it the Holy Spirit is praying over us? Romans 8:27 says He prays according to the will of God.

We are God’s children and He wants the absolute best for us, but we are all different people with different gifts and experiences. What He is praying over one is probably completely different than what He is praying over another.

God has a plan for our lives, and unfortunately, Satan also has a plan. It’s critically important to line up with the right plan—God’s perfect will.


Matthew 18:19 says,
“Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.”

We already have the Holy Spirit on our side, praying for us according to God’s perfect plan. All we need to do is join Him in that prayer. Simply ask God to reveal to you what the Spirit is praying over you.


When He makes it clear what He is praying over us, our heart is transformed by His amazing love, because we know the Father’s heart toward us. What we desperately want in our life is what He also wants for us.

As we receive His prayer with thanksgiving, let's join Him in that prayer.

May we always walk with Him in intimate knowledge of His great love for us. Let's seek it. Absorb it. Treasure it.

Adore Him, for He adores you.

Study the Bible verse of Romans 8:27 and know the Father’s heart toward you and the Holy Spirit’s prayer over you.
