“There is no man nor church in the world that can come to God in prayer, but by the assistance of the Holy Spirit. “For through Christ we all have access by one Spirit unto the Father” (Eph 2:18). Wherefore Paul saith, “For we know not what we should pray for as we ought; but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts, knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God” (Rom 8:26, 27).” (John Bunyan, vol. 1, A Discourse Touching Prayer, p. 627)
