Holy Spirit helps to Pray

Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran

Dearly beloved,
Let us always be filled with the Holy Spirit and let our requests and supplications be made known unto God. We need the help of the Holy Spirit to pray in the fullness of our spirit, always. The Lord has said that He will pour the Holy Spirit upon all flesh. (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17). Friends! Let our eyes look at the Lord, like the eyes of a servant will look upon the face of his/her master (Psalm 123:2). Let us wait at His feet. The Lord will surely have mercy upon us.
 
How should we pray? Daniel prayed three times a day (Daniel 6:10). We too are expected to pray like that. The psalmist says, “Because of your justice and righteousness I will praise you seven times a day” (Psalm 119:164). Look at our Lord Jesus! He prayed day and night to do the will of His father (Mark1:35; Luke 6:12). Let us also set aside our time to spend in the presence of God in prayer. The Holy Spirit will pour upon you this Spirit of supplication. We are weak but the Holy Spirit who is dwelling in us is strong. He will help us in our weaknesses. When we don’t know how to pray He will pray on our behalf with groaning that cannot be uttered in words. Yes, the Holy Spirit will pray for us and through us (Romans 8:26).
Many years ago, on our wedding anniversary as we gathered together as a family, to pray in the morning, we were filled by the Holy Spirit and I was crying out loud praying in tongues. I continued to pray even after everyone toned down. It was really a different experience! My clothes were drenched with my tears.  On one side of my mind I was thinking, “Oh! Everyone has finished their prayers and are waiting for me but I am endlessly praying”, yet I was not able to stop myself from praying. I was filled in the Spirit, praying in tongues for 45 minutes. After I ended my prayer I went to my father Bro. Dhinakaran and asked him about what I was praying about; as I wasn’t able to understand what I was uttering! Then my father said, “You were filled with the Holy Spirit and you were praying in tongues for your family and for those who requested you to pray for”. I was filled with great joy saying, “Oh! I never even thought of all these things but the Holy Spirit has prayed through me.” I praised and thanked God for that wonderful experience.

 This is exactly what is going to happen to you too my friend. You will not be able to control your prayer even if you want to stop the prayer; the Holy Spirit within you will not allow you to stop it. You will keep on speaking in tongues. This is the Spirit of supplication given by the Holy Spirit. You may be in sorrow thinking that your own family is not saved yet. In the days to come they will be saved through your prayers. Salvation has come to your house today (Luke 19:9). Through you who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, your household shall also be saved (Acts 16:31). You may seek the Lord alone but God will use you and bring salvation to your entire household. He will also bless those who are around you. 
Prayer:
I praise you Father, for this wonderful day. Lord let your Holy Spirit come upon me as I pray now. I need thy Holy Spirit that I will be able to pray for the people and the nation. Help me to carry each other's burden in my prayers.  Lord, you have promised that you will pour the Holy Spirit upon all flesh. Pour your Holy Spirit upon me. May my prayers bring your salvation to this nation. 
All this I pray in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, 
Amen!
