Pray for Afghanistan! Pray for Haiti! Pray for an end to the pandemic! Pray against social unrest! Pray for godly leadership! Pray against the rise of immorality…the list of things to pray for goes on and on… 💬
.
It’s easy for believers to feel a bit overwhelmed and wonder, “How on earth do I pray for all this?! 😥
.
Good news! God knew the list would be long and He’s got us covered! 😎
.
God has given us the gift of the Holy Spirit and the ability to pray in tongues! 🔥
.
And He promises that the Spirit will help us in our weaknesses – our weaknesses being that we don’t know how to pray as we should! (Romans 8:26)🤷🏼‍♀️
.
But when we pray in tongues over a situation, the Holy Spirit, who knows EXACTLY what needs to be prayed, makes intercession FOR us. (Romans 8:26) 🙌🏼
.
In other words, the Holy Spirit inside us does the praying FOR us – through our mouth! 🙏🏼
.
Picture that – the 100% perfect, flawless part of us is praying, therefore we are praying a 100% perfect, flawless prayer! (2 Corinthians 14:14)🎯
.
By praying in the Spirit, we are praying secret truths, hidden things, mysteries, things that aren’t known by our natural minds. 🤔❓
.
We are tapping into the mind of Christ that is in our spirits and praying out the answers to all these problems and the solutions to all these situations, without having to have any natural understanding of what they might be! (1 Corinthians 2:16)💡
.
So I encourage you, as you go about your day, say, “Lord, I pray for Afghanistan…” then pray in tongues.
.
Say, “Lord I pray over this pandemic…” then pray in tongues.
.
Say, “Lord, I pray over our government and the issues going on in our society…” then pray in tongues.
.
Pray this way over the situations in your own life where you need wisdom and solutions!
.
The BEST part is that when we pray in the Spirit and therefore pray the perfect prayer, God promises us that ALL THINGS will work together for OUR good and the good of those who love Him! (Romans 8:28) ✅
.
Don’t feel discouraged guys, your fervent, effective prayers (both in the spirit and your understanding) are POWERFUL and are changing and rearranging things! (James 5:16)🔥 #faithtalks
