Rhapsody Of Realities 27 March 2023 By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome (Christ Embassy): THE SPIRIT PRAYING THROUGH YOU
TOPIC: THE SPIRIT PRAYING THROUGH YOU (Rhapsody of Realities 27 March 2023)
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).
Rhapsody Of Realities For Today MESSAGE:
One of the most important kinds of prayer is one which the Holy Spirit Himself prays through you in intercession for the saints. That’s what we read in our opening verse above. There’s the one in which your spirit is praying in tongues, like the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 14:14: “For if l pray in an unknown tongue my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.”
However, there’re times your spirit may have been praying and it gets to the level where the Holy Spirit takes over that prayer. At that moment, it’s not your spirit that’s praying anymore but the Holy Spirit praying through you with deep sighs and groanings. You find yourself praying with intense, profuse uncontrollable tears; you’re wailing not out of sorrow or anguish but of soul-travail.
No words are being formed; you even have to hold your stomach as though you’re in pain, but there’s no pain. It’s the Holy Spirit travailing in prayer through you. Read our theme scripture again; it says the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which can’t be uttered in articulate speech. This is an amazing way to pray effectively and it’s important that you yield yourself to the Holy Spirit to pray through you like this from time to time. It’s His work through you.
When He prays through you, Romans 8:28 tells us the result: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Hallelujah!
PRAYER/CONFESSION (SAY IT LOUDLY TO YOURSELF)
I’m ever conscious and yielded to the ministry of the Holy Spirit in my personal life. There’s no disadvantage for me. I’m full of joy and I’m full of love and I walk in righteousness and in prosperity; goodness and mercy follow me every day of my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
