“Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.”
Series: Pray in the Holy Ghost
Praying in the Holy Spirit is very important aspect of our life. The more we depend on the Holy Spirit, the more we will be fruitful in our prayer life and our prayers will be effective and answered.
When we pray with our mind we understand what we are praying, but when we pray in our spirit we don t understand what we are praying because we are praying in a different language and that is necessary for every child of God. Every child of God have to ask for the gift of speaking in tongues so that they can overflow in their prayer life.
When we pray in the spirit at all times and on every occasion it indulgences us in a spiritual warfare with the unseen realm – the witchcraft done against us, the demonic forces that are fighting against our jobs, against ministry, family, things that we don’t even know about are taken care of when we pray in the spirit.
We should not pray in the spirit only when we are in problem, or have sickness or when we feel spiritual, feel very happy or sad, but we should pray in the spirit at all times and on every occasion which also means the danger of the demonic principalities trying to fight us is at all times.
A prayer of the spirit is more effective against the spiritual battles that we face than all the fasts that we do. It is more effective than the tithes/offerings we give, more than all the evangelism we do, more than all the ritualistic serving that we do for God.
Even as we start our day today, this is a good time to pray in the spirit. The biggest attack of the enemy on the children of God happens in the area of dreams. When we are sleeping that is the time when the enemy comes and sows the weed among the good seeds and they grow up to kill the real productivity.
God says when we pray in the spirit, we sometimes don’t even know the weeds that the enemy has sown in our head because they happen in unseen realms. Our battles are not with people who have flesh and blood, but it is against the principalities of the dark forces and sometimes they even fight with us in our dreams and we need to fight them by waking up and praying in tongues and relying on the Holy Spirit and asking Him to fill you with His power to build one another in the most holy faith. When we do this consistently in every season of our life we will have a continual victory.
If we can reignite the passion to pray in the spirit throughout the day ahead, our life will never be the same. We will start seeing dreams and visions, start hearing prophetic words, start hearing God’s voice in such sharpness and intensity that we have not seen or heard or experienced ever before.
