26Similarly the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We don’t know how to speak with God, but the Spirit himself intercedes with and through us by groans that can’t be put into words. 27The One who examines the minds of everyone knows the Spirit’s motives#8:27. Or, “the mind of the Spirit.”, because the Spirit pleads God’s cause on behalf of the believers. 28We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, those who he has called to be part of his plan.
