Not Sure How to Pray?
Not Sure How to Pray?
Wayne McDonald

Romans 8:26-27 “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 to deep for utterance.

And He who searches the hearts of men knows what is the mind of the [Holy] Spirit  [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God’s will”.

The word weakness here means our dullness of perception and our inability to produce results. There are plenty of times in life when we don’t know what to pray or how to pray. God has given to us His Holy Spirit to help us be effective in prayer. A lot of times people will pray there worries and concerns.

There is a greater purpose for prayer then praying out of worry. By connecting with the Holy Spirit in prayer you tap into the mind and heart of God. We should always pray for our nation. I always pray Father give our president and his administration your heart and perspective.

Visit every man and woman that makes up our federal and local government. Then I pray in other tongues over their lives. When I do that I am no longer praying from my perspective but I am praying the perfect will of God concering them.

You can pray the perfect will of God for you and your family. Praying in other tongues is the perfect prayer. This is one of the ways God manifests His purposes in the earth. Not sure how to pray? Pray in the Spirit in other tongues and pray the perfect will of God.
