The Spirit intercedes on behalf of the saints according to God’s will.
“I tell you the solemn truth, whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive it, so that your joy may be complete.” With every prayer and petition, pray at all times in the Spirit.
And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him. For this is God’s will: that you become holy.
For God … [called] us … in holiness … who gives his Holy Spirit to you.
Always rejoice, constantly pray, in everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not extinguish the Spirit.
