Creation groans...
“the creation waits in eager expectation for the son of God to be revealed...” (vs 19)




We groan...
“we ourselves... groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons...” (vs 23)




the Spirit groans...
“the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express...” (vs 26)




“When we stumble over our words, the Spirit straightens out the syntax When we pray with muddy motives, the Spirit purifies the stream. When we see through a glass darkly, the Spirit adjusts and focuses what we are asking until it corresponds to the will of God.”

Richard Foster, Prayer
