I heard, “I have heard your sighs and groanings. I AM granting you relief. Your King is here with you through it all, My Steadfast Love endures forever!”
“Beloved. I hear your deep sighs and your groanings. You may not have realized it but this is My Spirit in you travailing and interceding for you.
These come from your innermost being. I know you do not always have the words to say when you are hurting and in distress. But the Comforter has come to abide in you and to help you. He makes your prayers perfect.
I AM granting you relief from days of trouble. I perfect that which concerns you, Dear One. I AM He who comforts you, My Child.
My steadfast Love endures forever. Your sighs and groanings touch My Heart deeply. They are wordless prayers, Dear One, Yes, they are perfect prayers prayed by the Holy Spirit, by God Himself.
The LORD is Spirit. Inside your heart resides Truth and Wisdom, Beloved, so do not be anxious about anything.
Know that you are heard. I will not forsake you. Know that you have victory in your Savior. I AM well acquainted with your griefs and sorrows, My Child, and My Strong Shoulders carried them for you.
So rest, My Bride. Lay down those heavy burdens at My Feet, and rest in My Perfect Love. And be confident in the Holy Spirit within you Who intercedes on your behalf.
Your sighs and groanings shall have their perfect work. I, even I, AM He who comforts you. I AM He who grants relief from the onslaught of the enemy; no longer shall he disturb you, but in Me, you have Shalom Peace.
Joy and gladness will once again overtake you, Beloved. Sorrow and sighing shall be exchanged for singing and a crown of unending joy shall be upon your head!”

“And looking up to heaven, JESUS SIGHED DEEPLY and said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means, “Be opened!”). I mmediately the man’s ears were opened and his tongue was released, and he began to speak plainly,” Mark 7:34-35. (Ephphatha: Strong’s Greek G4727: To groan, expressing grief or desire. From stenos; to sigh, murmur, pray inaudibly.)
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know how we ought to pray, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with GROANS too deep for words. And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God,” Romans 8:26-27.
“He shall see of the TRAVAIL of His soul, and shall be satisfied: by His knowledge shall My righteous Servant justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities,” Isaiah 53:11.
“So the redeemed of The LORD will return and enter Zion with singing, crowned with unending joy. Joy and gladness will overtake them, and sorrow and SIGHING will flee. I, even I, am He who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mortal man, or a son of man who withers like grass?” Isaiah 51:11-12.
“To grant him relief from days of trouble, until a pit is dug for the wicked. For The LORD will not forsake His people; He will never abandon His heritage.” Psalm 94:13-14.
