In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God's people in accordance with the will of God.
Unless the LORD had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.
Praise be to the LORD, for he has heard my cry for mercy.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. [^1]
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever —
For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
The LORD helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.
Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.
Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name's sake.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
You make your saving help my shield; your help has made "me great.
Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Savior.
