Does the statement, "Jesus groaned in his spirit" mean the same thing as praying in the Spirit?


John 11:33

NKJV - 33 Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled.

It is not often that Jesus is troubled in His spirit. With that said, why would He be so troubled here?.He knew He was going to raise Lazarus or He would not have come. I believe He was deeply moved and troubled in the spirit because of everyone's faith (lack). Didn't they know who He was/is?
