Thought for the month of August
Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.
“Pray in the Spirit …!”Paul is asking us to pray consciously in the Spirit. To pray what is on our hearts and to ask for knowledge, power, and boldness for others. His Spirit is with us and in us and takes us directly to the heart of God enabling our prayers to have powerful results.
Our prayers are so much more than the words we say. We pray, consciously, alertly, and persistently, speaking to the Creator of the universe, assured that we are heard and knowing that God will respond with power and grace in the lives of those for whom we pray!
Father, we thank you for your incredible gift of the Holy Spirit who makes our prayers much more than words. Thank you that we can pray in the Spirit, knowing that we are heard and understood. Thank you thatsuch intentional praying brings powerful blessings for those we pray for. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
