Romans 8:24-27 (NRSV)
24 For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not
hope. For who hopes for what is seen?
25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it
26 Likewise the
Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray
as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep
27 And God, who
searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because
the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
