Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. -Romans 8:26–27

Sometimes prayer can be a tricky thing. We don’t know where to start or what to say. Or maybe for some of us we want to grow deeper in our prayer life but don’t know how to take that next step. Some of our Woodside Staff members have put together a list of resources all about growing your prayer life.
