Pray in the Spirit
Ephesians 6:18 "Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,
and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints."
Paul is asking believers to pray consciously recognizing that the Spirit given
them when they came to Christ (Eph. 1:13) gives them direct access to God
to pray what is on their heart,and to intercede for knowledge, power, and
boldness for others. Put in cornbread English, the Spirit who lives inside us,
empowers our prayers, interceding directly to the heart of God, enabling our
prayers to have powerful results! So wonderful to go to the Father first hand,
and know he hears me. Praise his name, and praise his ways, they are the right
ways.
We are studying prayer in our SS class, and I am finding more and more
verses to study on, I am excited about the class, and pray with me for the girls
and that we can build a godly class in all ways, that new girls will join in, and
that we all will grow in grace. Thanks for all your support here, I so appreciate
the words of encouragement you give, love to each one of you. ♥

I have always depended on the Comforter to pray with/for me. Alone, I cannot put it to words. With Him:


Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
(Romans 8:26 KJV)

I just loved this post, renewing in us a reminder the special relationship we have with our lord through prayer and not a mundane thing we do out of habit, I imagine this class is so interesting and alive with the spirit.
