Holy Spirit Helps In Prayer
Jesus told a parable to instruct that Christians ought to pray without giving up, especially when the answer to prayer is delayed. But we sometimes come to the place when we don’t know what else to say in prayer. We have prayed all manners of prayer and nothing seems to be happening. Other times we are in such physical or emotional distress that we are unable to pray for ourselves let alone other people. Even when we think we know what to pray for and have the strength to pray, we may not really know the right thing we should be asking for. We need the help of the Holy Spirit so that we ask according to God’s will, so that we receive strength when we are discouraged or weakened. The Holy Spirit intercedes for us at a depth we cannot fathom. Whenever you run dry at the altar of prayer, begin to pray in the Holy Spirit, speak in tongues and you will be ushered into a season of refreshing.
Point of Emphasis: We do not know what we should pray for as we ought to, but the Spirit Himself makes intercessions for us.
Prayer Point: Holy Spirit, empower me and teach me to pray as I ought to.
