16th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A: 2nd Reading

Romans 8:26-27

Brothers and sisters:
The Spirit comes to the aid of our weakness;
   for we do not know how to pray as we ought,
   but the Spirit himself intercedes with inexpressible groanings.
And the one who searches hearts
   knows what is the intention of the Spirit,
   because he intercedes for the holy ones
   according to God’s will.
