No Limits In Prayer – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional March 19th

(The Holy Spirit Helps You Pray Without Limitation)

TO THE BIBLE Romans 8:26
“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

“Lord, I don’t know how to express myself regarding this situation, but I know once I pray in the spirit, the Holy Spirit will take off the limitations and help me express your will,” Nelson declared before praying in tongues. And sure enough, shortly afterwards, the issue was resolved in his favour.

Studying today’s opening verse, we observe that the Apostle Paul didn’t say we don’t know at all what to pray for; rather, he said we don’t know as we ought to know.

So this weakness is that of a limitation of knowledge, but the Holy Spirit helps us out with it. It’s part of His ministry in our lives that we’re to recognise and take advantage of.

If you’re ever confronted with a situation you don’t have enough details or information about, don’t despair. Trust the Holy Spirit. The Word says the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings that cannot be uttered.

In other words, the Holy Spirit stands in the gap and intercedes for you; He takes charge in your behalf, carrying out His intercessory ministry through you.

This is so important because the Holy Spirit doesn’t pray on His own. He needs your vocal faculties. For example, the Bible says in Acts 13:2 that as the apostles ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, “…Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”

The instruction from the Lord that Barnabas and Saul (who later became Paul) should be consecrated to the work of the ministry came as a prophetic word, spoken through one of those praying.

Someone received the word and gave it forth, yet it was reported that “the Holy Spirit said….” This is the ministry of the Holy Spirit in you. He’ll help you pray effectively and speak forth God’s Word through you.

Dear Father, thank you for the intercessory ministry of the Holy Spirit through me. I take advantage of the impartation of the knowledge of your will concerning issues of importance; He helps me pray effectively, bringing your perfect will to pass in my life and in all my endeavours, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
