The Holy Spirit intercedes for us.

ROM 8:2627
Romans 8:26–27 NASB95
In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
The Holy Spirit is always a difficult topic to address because the Holy Spirit is not as well defined as we would like. But one of the more prevailing issues especially in Arianism is the need to define the Holy Spirit and its role. I think the biggest issue is that there is some confusion on whether the Holy Spirit is the father as well as the spirit. The reason this problem comes up is because people see where the Bible talks about Mary being overshadowed by the Holy Spirit and because of that they want to assume that the Holy Spirit is the father of Jesus because he placed a was involved in the placement of Jesus within Mary.
I think that this is a mistake to assume that when Jesus comes into Mary that this is him being fathered somehow. If we know that Jesus already existed and operated and spoke and delivered messages for God before Mary then he's already been fathered you're not fathered again. And so when he comes into Mary it's not that he's being fathered again and the only person I could place them there would be the father because there's no rule for that. The idea needs to be that it already created existing being transformed into flash from another form and resided within the womb of Mary. So in that way the roles are not that the only person that Could Pl., Jesus within Mary is the father because only the father of Jesus could place him in that position. Ultimately God is doing the work regardless.
