Day 34 – Prayer Focus – “Holy Spirit our Helper”

Martin Luther said: “To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.”

You may feel insufficient when it comes to praying. According to the scriptures, we are insufficient and need the help of the Holy Spirit to pray.

In Romans 8:26 – “So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.” (AMP)

Often we don’t know what to pray. The circumstances we find ourselves in are beyond our ability to comprehend and understand. God sees the end from the beginning and he knows what we have need of.

Our prayer focus today is to pray in the spirit with “unspeakable yearnings and groaning too deep for utterance.” Pray with confidence that the Holy Spirit is your helper and he is praying through you. He is your teacher in the supernatural realms of prayer.

John 14:26 – “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”
