Ro 8:26 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 with groans that words cannot express

Sometimes, due to your physical condition or other problems, it seems you cannot pray.  What is prayer?  Prayer is communion with God.

If you have received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, God’s Holy Spirit is within you and continually interceding for you.  When you cannot pray, orally acknowledge the presence of the Holy Spirit within you.  Let Him pray for you.  Try to realize how much love it took for God to give us His Holy Spirit as a constant intercessor.  Allow Him to be your Comforter as well.  Try to relax and become aware of His Presence.

If you are able, call a friend and tell them of your need.  People are blessed when they intercede for others.  Many times they get so busy they forget.  Bless them by asking for their prayers.

Practice your awareness of God’s Holy Spirit within you while you are not quite so disturbed.  Remind yourself throughout the day that He is there.  Talk to Him and thank Him for being there.  Thank your Father for sending Him to you.  Thank Jesus for dying so you could receive Him

The more you become aware of His Presence on your better days, the easier it is to feel His Presence on the other days.  Then you can rest in trust while the Spirit prays.
