A human being lives, but he is given life.
Every Christian is involved in warfare with the enemy with eternal consequences at stake. This battle is as real as any ever fought on this earth between nations. The battle is between the kingdom of God and the Kingdom of darkness. Paul describes this as a wrestling match, which is up close and personal. So an important question, then, is what does it mean to pray in the Spirit? A brief definition would be that we pray in the Spirit when our prayers are prompted by the Holy Spirit.
Ellen White wrote in her book “The Desire of Ages” We must not only pray in Christ name, but by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. This explains what is meant when it is said that the Spirit makes intercession for us, with groaning which cannot be uttered (Romans 8:26) such prayer God delights to answer”.
It is the Holy Spirit that calls us to prayer. He will show us some great need to pray for because God wants to begin acting in meeting that need. We read such an experience in the case of Jesus praying for Peter in (Luke 22:31, 32).
Let us taste of mercy, lead us to confess our sins. Bring us to rejoice fully in you as we pray in the Spirit.
