Pray in the Spirit

When you don’t know what to pray
Don’t let that hold you back
Try praying in the Spirit
And the job shall get done

In words you do not know yourself
In a different tongue
As the spirit gives you utterance
The Perfect Prayer shall come

The Spirit, He will intercede
On your behalf
With groaning too deep for words
Understood, by God, our Father

For the Father knows his every thought
Whether audible or not
So you have no cause to worry
Just pray and it shall be done to perfection
When you pray in the Spirit!!!

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people – (Ephesians 6:18)

The Holy Spirit is our constant assurance of our access to the heart of God. The Spirit intercedes for us and communicates our words and our emotions according to the will of God. Like in all worship, the Holy Spirit fills us, is among us, and participates with us as we seek God. In prayer, the Holy Spirit also empowers and enables us as we pray. Prayer is much more than shouting words at heaven or begging God for help. Prayer happens because of the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. God himself, in the Spirit, is praying with us and through us!

Prayer : Father, please hear the prayer I share with you using words. Father, please hear the prayer I offer you that is deeper than words and beyond what my words can convey. Thank you for the Holy Spirit who intercedes, empowers, and makes possible this prayer. In Jesus’ name I thank you. Amen.
