Review: Praying In The Spirit-A Gift From God
One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is praying in tongues, also called praying in the spirit. In John 7:37 Jesus prophesied that when the Spirit is given, rivers of living water would flow out of our belly. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament. How we release the rivers of water is by praying in the spirit. In 1 Cor 14:5 Apostle Paul said he wished everyone would pray in tongues. In Paul’s letters he also refereed to praying in the spirit as “the prayer.” Paul described praying in the spirit as the one and only prayer, above all prayer. My hope is to stir up a desire for you to pray in the spirit more than ever before.
One of the benefits of praying in tongues is that it is a perfect prayer that is always answered. Romans 8:26-27 tells us we often don’t know how to pray. When we pray in the spirit, the Holy Spirit prays through us according to the perfect will of God. 1 John 5:14 tells us if we pray according to the will of God, we have what we asked for when we pray. This takes the guesswork out of prayer. When you pray in the spirit, your prayers will be answered perfectly, 100% of the time. God’s will is always to prosper you and bless you. So when you pray in the spirit, you will experience the anointing and power of God more than ever before.
When the disciples asked Jesus how to pray in Matthew 6:8-13, He gave them what we call the Lord’s Prayer. Jesus obviously knew the will of God. He instructed them to pray heaven down to earth. He also told them to ask God to lead them away from temptation and for deliverance from all evil. Verse 13 tells us when we pray in this manner, you will experience the kingdom, the power and the glory of God. Today we have something even better than the Lord’s Prayer. We have the Holy Spirit praying perfectly for us. Obviously, all of the benefits of praying the Lord’s Prayer will be included, since this is the will of God. The more you pray in the spirit, you will experience heaven on earth. If you need a breakthrough in your life, ask the Holy Spirit to intercede for you as you pray in the spirit. It may take a day or two to get the rivers flowing if you don’t pray in the spirit often, but you will feel the peace of God and a refreshing if you continue to pray in the spirit. Eventually the spirit will flow freely. Every dry area of your life will be completely anointed by the rivers flowing out of you. You will experience the breakthrough you needed. You will then understand why praying in the spirit is a gift from God.
