Abstract When Paul refers to the Spirit's interceding for believers in Rom 8:26-27, he pictures the Spirit as bringing elements of the believers' felt experience of suffering to God. Through the Spirit's intercession God knows the heart experience of suffering believers. This often overlooked aspect of Pauline pneumatology may have something to contribute to comtemporary theological discussion of God's capacity to be touched by human suffering.
