Praying In The Spirit By Pastor Kenny Folarin. Daystar Christian Centre
God does not want us to run the Christian race with our human ability. To enjoy the blessings of God and to see the fulfilment of your destiny as a Christian, you need the help of the Holy Spirit. Praying in the spirit is an indispensable requirement for every Christian. The supernatural life is lived by engaging the supply of heaven in your life; so praying in the spirit enables you to download help and revelation from heaven. In this world, there are different voices fighting for your attention; praying in the spirit helps you tune your mind and heart to heaven’s frequency. To be able to do this effectively, you need to speak the language of the Spirit. It is the Spirit of God who knows everything and brings those things, which are beyond your imagination and comprehension, into existence. As a born again Christian, you can operate beyond human limitations by the help of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2: 9-11). God is the only constant in this changing and uncertain world that we live in and it is only through your relationship with Him and your prayers that you have access to the supernatural and can get things done better and faster.
When you pray in the spirit, you gain access into realms which are beyond your human comprehension. Since we all have weaknesses, the Holy Spirit helps our infirmities and enables us to pray in line with God’s will. In your human capacity, you can only pray generally for your loved ones but when you pray in the Spirit, you can pray specifically and target precise points in their lives and circumstances.
Here are some of the benefits of praying in the spirit: First, the Holy Spirit helps you to pray accurately and in line with the will of God. He will sometimes prompt you to intercede for others and for situations when you least expect it. (Romans 8:27). Second, praying in the spirit gives you direct access to God and your prayer becomes a discussion between you and God which keeps the devil out of the conversation. The devil cannot comprehend your spiritual language and therefore cannot marshal his forces to stop your prayers (1 Corinthians 14: 1-2). Third, you gain access to deep knowledge which your mind cannot ordinarily comprehend. You get a description of the spiritual realities that will happen in your physical life when you pray in the spirit. Fourth, your spiritual capacity is built up and your spiritual batteries are recharged. Whenever you feel emotions contrary to the joy of the Holy Ghost or you are unhappy and depressed, pray in the spirit and the heaviness will lift; you will become edified (Jude 20; 1Corinthians 14:4a). Fifth, you get divinely inspired ideas and access to superior intelligence when you pray in the spirit (Ephesians 3:10 – 12; John 5: 19). The Holy Spirit is the only One who can change stagnant and dry circumstances for the better.
May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray!
