Our Helper in Prayer

Likewise the Spirit also helps us 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

The Holy Spirit is our Helper. He inspires us; He motivates us to follow after the Lord in a particular direction. One of the ways the Spirit helps us in in our prayer life. The Lord wants us to seek after Him in prayer, and when we pray, the Holy Spirit is there to give us the words to say. He wants to empower us to intercede. Whether we have the gift of tongues or not, the Holy Spirit lives within us, and as we allow Him, He desires to pray through us.

The Lord will give us specific scriptures to pray over specific situations. He will speak to our hearts directing us how to pray for individuals, cities, and nations. The Lord wants to fill us with His compassion. Our prayers can be ignited by God's love and faith, and we can see results. As we pray God's will for others, we will see God at work among us. Let's pray with faithfulness and fervency. Let's allow the Holy Spirit to guide us when we pray. Then as He moves in our midst, He will receive all the glory.
