“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.”
Series: Pray in the Holy Ghost
We continue the study of what God means when He says you need to pray in the Holy Spirit.
Prayer in the flesh can be very tiring, but prayer in the Holy Spirit can be refreshing, it can bring life where there is dryness, it can bring the rain of God’s presence, which can nourish us, help us, uplift us, encourage us, give us fresh hope, motivation, reason and ignition inside our spirit which will help us go long distance.
So many times when we rely on ourselves, we can utterly and totally fail. But the more we learn to rely upon God, the more we learn to rely upon His presence, His voice, His desires and His praise.
Romans 8:26 says, “And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.“
There are things in the heart of God, there are prayers which we can not explain our way to God because our minds cannot comprehend or understand it. The bible says in the times when we are weak the Holy Spirit helps us, prays for us and prays with us. That is the concept of praying in the Holy Spirit.
When Solomon asked God to give him wisdom, it was sure that he was relying on the Holy Spirit and so he prayed the right thing which turned out to be a blessing for his entire life.
So many times God has given us opportunity to ask and we have wasted that opportunity because we pray in our natural abilities.
We don’t know what to pray but the Holy Spirit knows.
Power Point: Relying on the Holy Spirit can revolutionise your prayer life.
In Matthew 26:41, Jesus said to keep watch and pray so that you will not give into temptation, for the Spirit is willing but the body is weak.
Our flesh, our body is weak, it is struggling on a daily basis. There are areas in our lives where we fail miserably and that is where God wants us to remember that when our body, mind and our understanding fails, we can rely on the Holy Spirit and when you rely on the Holy Spirit you will never fail.
Holy Spirit come and fill my people, my son, my daughter that are listening to me right now. Lord fill them with Your presence and the power to such an extent that every word they pray this morning will be prayed in the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit. That every desire that they express in front of You will be based and founded on the Holy Spirit. Have Your way I pray in Jesus mighty name. Amen!
