“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”‘Romans 8:26 NKJV
There are different kinds of prayers we pray as Believers but the prayers that make tremendous effect are those prayed in and with the Spirit. Note; I didn’t say praying in tongues.
When you pray in tongues the Bible says its your spirit that prays.
“For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.”
I Corinthians 14:14 NKJV
Praying in tongues is different from praying in and with the Spirit. When we pray in tongues, what we are doing is edifying ourselves- we build our spirit man up.
But praying in and with the Spirit is what the Bible says in Romans 8:26; which our text comes from.
It’s the point where the Holy Spirit of God Himself takes a hold of us in prayer and prays through us to establish God’s kingdom (His reign and rule) on the earth.
These kind of prayers are usually very intense and because of that you can’t utter words; all you have is deep sighing and groanings. Its these kinds of prayers that birth new things on the earth, it changes situations and circumstances drastically by the power of God’s Spirit.
Three ways to get to this place in Prayers

Pray much and long in tongues with Scriptures running through your mind as you pray.
Desire. You must desire strongly, to get to the place in prayer where the Holy Spirit of God Himself joins forces with you and together, you birth new and great moves of God on the earth.
This is the point where you know that without a shadow of doubt, that your prayers are effective and causing changes.
