Here in Romans 8:26 I think the Spirit of God knows all things including the mind of God concerning people s lives and He also knows people who they really are and why they do what they do...so the He intercedes with details..He knows us more than we know ourselves..No one knows us better than Him

We as humans are limited by our senses,even when we pray,we do so according to our feelings,but when we pray in tongues, we are praying mysteries, praying the will of God. We are fixing things in the realm of the spirit which are not revealed to our senses.

I think the difference of the word intercession in the greek gives some light to this as well. The Greek word for Intercession in verse 26 is slightly different than in verse 27. The main difference is the preposition 'Huper', which is part of the word Intercession in verse 26, but not in verse 27. Since the preposition 'Huper' means both: In Behalf Of and Above in Time, honor, and position; this intercession is that of the Holy Spirit's (which is Above us in time, honor and position) and intercedes with our spirit. And since the Holy Spirit knows our infirmities and our hearts in creates this intercesssion. Any Opinions??
