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.
Romans 8:26-27

Lord, you know what’s in our hearts
You hear our inwards cries
The storms that tear our souls apart
The tears that fill our eyes

We know not what we ought to say
How best we could express
This groaning offered up in prayer
This weakness we confess

Yet in this way your Spirit leads
Your saints before your throne
With wordless groans he intercedes
For sons you’ve called your own
