Thought For Today: “Holy Spirit Empowered Prayers”
Having our hearts filled and overflowing with Holy Spirit empowers our prayer life allowing us to enter the presence of God in ways we never imagined.
“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.” (Romans 8:26)
The Holy Spirit helps our weakness when it comes to our prayer life because we naturally don’t know how to pray, or what we should be praying for.
Being the third person of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit knows the mind and will of the Father and Jesus toward us. Therefore, He can effectively intercede on our behalf empowering us to seek the Father and Jesus to an even greater extent than we already are!
The Holy Spirit empowers our hearts with the faith to believe. This is something we desperately need because many of us don’t feel as if our prayers are making it up to heaven or being effective.
We read the Bible about the prayer life of great men and women of faith, but when we compare our prayer experience it doesn’t seem to measure up. So, we feel disillusioned, disheartened, and just want to give up.
This is where the Holy Spirit helps. The Holy Spirit gives us the power to continue praying and believing God and His promises more than the circumstances we find ourselves in.
