Apostle Grace Lubega
Romans 8:26 (KJV); Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Infirmity in prayer is the inability to produce results.
God gave us the Holy Spirit so that He can help us obtain the results of prayer.
If you ever find yourself praying over the same issue over and over again without an answer, it is most likely that your prayer is being made without the aid of the Spirit and that is why it goes unanswered.
The Holy Spirit helps our infirmities in prayer in a number of ways. He can tell us exactly what the problem is so that we do not waste time praying over the wrong issue. He can tell us how to pray in divine order, for example, if one is praying without thanksgiving, the Spirit will remind him that all prayer ought to be made with thanksgiving.
In some instances, the Spirit will even go as far as telling us when to pray and when to apply wisdom.
What does all this teach us?
Praying with the Spirit is the one guarantee that our prayers will yield results and answers.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Praying with the Spirit is the one guarantee that our prayers will yield results and answers.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this word. The Bible says that You did not leave us comfortless and that You sent us another helper like Yourself. I thank You for Your Spirit, my Guide, Strength and Constant Helper. My life of prayer is fully yielded to Him. I know how to pray and what to pray for because He is my aid. By this, I see constant results in prayer. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
