#72 The Spirit Empowers You to Pray

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: The Spirit empowers you to pray. Do you feel you have so little prayer power? Of course, you do. None of us has prayer power in ourselves. 

The role of the Holy Spirit is to empower. He wants to express His power through you as you prevail for the burdens on His heart.

#71 The Spirit Longs to Share His Burden

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: The Spirit longs to share His burden, compassion, and travail of soul with you. God has ordained that the power to change things, to restrain evil, to calm human hatred, and to heal the world's wounds is released by the prayer of His people.

What Matters is Who God Is

Max Lucado: When God announced Moses was to deliver the Israelites, Moses wasn’t convinced! God demonstrated that who Moses was didn’t matter. What mattered was who God was.

“Moses”,  spoke the voice from the bush, “Throw down your staff” (Exodus 4:3). (Google image Moses and the burning bush)

God you may not know...well, you don’t go around throwing down your staff. You never know when. . .

#70 The Spirit Burdens You to Pray

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: The Spirit burdens you to pray. No Christian has fully understood the burden on the heart of the Holy Spirit as He longs for, loves, and identifies with all the suffering, heartaches, and heart-burdens of Christians across the world.

#69 God's Spirit Teaches You the Love of Prayer

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: The Holy Spirit teaches you the love of prayer, the wise and appropriate content of prayer, how to pray in the Spirit. 

These spiritual things are Spirit-taught and spiritually discerned by those who are Spirit-filled (1 Cor. 2:14). Spiritual sensitivity, spiritual perception, spiritual longings, and spiritual warfare are all deep things of God that are taught by the Holy Spirit (2 Cor. 2:10) (Google image, Praying in the Spirit by Colin S. Smith)
