For the past three weeks, we have been studying what prayer should be: What it means to pray for the Father’s will to be done, and His name to be hallowed, and how, as His children, we can take any request to Him, trusting His love to do what is best for us. And we have explored how to keep praying when God seems silent or there seems to be no answer. There is incredible access to God through prayer for those who are in Christ.
What about the other way around, though? If it is true that God, through the groans of the Holy Spirit, the intercessions of the Son, and the purposes of the Father, agrees in holy, Trinitarian prayer for us…. Then what does God pray for when He prays for you?
