We will recall that one of the justifications for Praying Effectively is the premise that different rules govern various sport.. So even though it could be hockey, tennis, football, swimming all categorized as sport, they have different regulations in place in order to enjoy them.
We accept that there are different kinds of prayer and hence the need to know how to engage them for Effective Prayer.
We’ve spent time to address Prayers of Faith (Part 2 of which is due to come), Intercession, Supplication or Petition, and Agreement. So having dealt with these, we know which prayer type to engage in.
One of our helpers in Prayer is the Holy Spirit.
Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
Romans 8:26-27 NKJV
The word helps here means that the Holy Spirit together with us takes hold, and helps our infirmities or weaknesses.
The help of the Holy Spirit in prayer connotes a togetherness with us and the Holy Spirit Who helps us.
For eg a person moving a heavy object might have to call on others for help in order to be successful. A lot of the times, we don’t have the knowledge to pray with accuracy so the Holy Spirit sets in to help us pray more accurately and with precision.
That’s why in 1 Corinthians 14.2 the Bible says
For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.
I Corinthians 14:2 NKJV
Make sure you receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. If you don’t have the Holy Spirit come to us here at Faith Temple, we are here to help you mature into spirit-filled Disciples of God.
Take note that the Holy Spirit is given to us by God. And the Holy Spirit helps us in our prayers.
People don’t see much of the activity of the Holy Spirit because they don’t spend time in His presence long enough. They don’t pray for long periods.
The least for a Believer is 1 hour a day of effective prayer. You need your spirit to be in control. Your inner man must always be in control so that you don’t get confused when emergencies come. The Holy Spirit will let you know how to handle it.
So the Holy Spirit helps us (not do for us). Acts 1.8 says we shall receive the dynamic ability to cause changes when the power of God comes upon us. God keeps expecting that the enemy will flee from us because His Provision ensures that awe draw strength from within to exercise dominion.
One of the things about Deliverance Bible says is that when a demonic spirit is cast away from a person, it leaves but keeps checking to see “the room şwept clean” and brings other evil spirits to invade that person. The situation then becomes harder. There are some things noone can do for you. Stay in prayer. It is solely your responsibility to pray. If you don’t there are certain elevations you cannot attain.
If you need Deliverance from any situation go into the Word. It provides the access you want. Look at it this way, If you bring your home key to try to open the church doors it won’t budge. Whichever prayer type you want to use, you need the right key which is – time to wait on God that your activities and actions will be conducive for the favor you seek .
And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
John 14:16-18 NKJV
God’s word is everlasting. It has No expiry dates. It is valid forever. Until we go into eternity and see the word in anther Form this Bible is the authentic word of God
The Holy Spirit resides with us forever. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS WITH ME FOREVER IN THE NAME OF JESUS. Such a blessed Assurance!
The Holy Spirit is also the Spirit of Truth. Whenever you hear from Him follow what He says with conviction. Even where it may look difficult and/or uncertain, follow him.
If in so doing, the World doesn’t agree with you, don’t worry. In fact there must be question marks if the world agrees wholeheartedly with you. In other words it is to be expected that the world will not accept your acceptance and promotion of the the Holy Spirit.
You are a Difference Maker by the power of the Holy Spirit. You need to move away from peers that prevent you from developing maturity in Chrst.
Jesus promised never to leave us and has come to us in the present day in the form of Holy Spirit. He functions through our senses actively and that is an assurance that we are never alone.
But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor–Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.
JOHN 14:26 AMP
The Holy Spirit is our Comforter. And Counselor. If you need anything the Holy Spirit is a far superior Counsellor. If only you will ask him for help He Will Help. He speaks to the Father for us as an Intercessory. He is our Standby. Just Like a generator is essential when we are empty of Power. So it’s important to know the He is our Helper in prayer. He helps, strengthens and guides us in Prayer.
Increase your Prayer duration gradually. Spend more time in His presence and you will receive strength. It also means that where we are weak, the Holy Spirit helps us to produce effective results in prayer
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
Hosea 4:6 ESV
Knowledge is key. Therefore Knowledge of God is essential for all shut doors to open because you have the right keys . This is one of the reasons the Holy Spirit inspired Paul to pray in Ephesians 1:6.
to the praise of His glorious grace and favor, which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved [His Son, Jesus Christ].
EPHESIANS 1:6 AMP
This is a prayer we can pray more to allow the Holy Spirit give us a clear understanding of the power God has for us.
The Holy Spirit helps us in our weaknesses. The Holy Spirit helps us in prayer.
He speaks for us. He’s our Advocate, A Standby to fall on at anytime. The Holy Spirit is Ever ready to help us.
AS JESUS WAS TO HIS DISCIPLES, SO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT TO US PRESENTLY.
He has come to take the place of Jesus. Whatever Jesus would have done for you, the Holy Spirit has come to do directly for us.
So Communicate with the Holy Spirit. Whatever you need for any situation that is overwhelming you, pray ask the Holy Spirit to help you for good and effective results. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you afresh…
Thank you oh our Father
For giving us Your son
And leaving Your Spirit till Your work on earth is done.
We Glorify and Magnify Your Name
Oh my God
We glorify and magnify Your name
