Prayer is the key to maintaining consistent and regular communion with God. It keeps you in tune with the Holy Spirit. To be able to pray to the Father effectively, you need to understand what His ways, thoughts and plans are. Meditate and study the word of God to fully comprehend His ways, thoughts and plans. Without the Word it is impossible to understand the mind of Christ and the heart of our Heavenly Father.
Praying in the spirit stirs up your spirit to connect and unite with the Holy Spirit, making intercessions for you in ways that we do not understand. The Spirit of the living God is pure, holy and has power to search the heart and helps us to pray for the perfect will of God over our lives.
‘Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God’. Romans 8:26-27 NKJV
Praying the Father’s heart starts with the act of surrendering your fleshly desires, will, heart, life, spirit body and soul also everything about you to Jesus Christ on the cross. It is all about Him and not you. You must decrease and He increase so that His name be glorified in your life (John 3:30). To achieve this requires your submission of self pride, humbling yourself under the mighty hands of God for His will, purpose and plan to be perfected in your life
In every situation or challenge you experience, discover God’s will and promise through spending time in His presence, praying in the spirit and in communion with God. Having a divine knowledge and understanding of His perfect will and plan causes the situation to fall into alignment according to His purpose. It positions you strategically in place of receiving all that He has in store for you, abundance of His love, divine breakthrough and intervention.
My life of prayer has been a powerful tool to connect with God the Father through His Son Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit to gain divine access to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace in time of need, enforce my royal and priestly authority in the heavenly realms to command what be not as though they were. When I pray in the spirit, the Lord gives me insight to His heart that is beyond human comprehension and limitation.
I pray that the Lord would open your spiritual eyes to see beyond your human understanding to grasp the heart and mind of God. He will help you through the power of the Holy Spirit to pray in perfect fullness His heart’s desires even in your weaknesses in Jesus Name Amen.
