Day 2 – For the Spirit of Supplication and Intercession
Scriptures to Meditate and Pray Through –
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express” (Romans 8:26).
“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication” (Zechariah 12:10).
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints” (Ephesians 6:18).
“But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit” (Jude 20).
How to Pray –
Enter into the Presence of God. Do this by finding a quiet place to pray and picture yourself before God’s throne. Tell Him you are there to meet with Him. Remember He is a loving Father.
On the day of His resurrection, our Lord gave His disciples the Holy Spirit to enable them to wait for the full outpouring of the Spirit on the day of Pentecost. It is only in the Presence of the Spirit already in us, acknowledged and yielded to, that we can pray for His fuller manifestation.
What to Pray –
Tell the Father that it is the Spirit of His Son in you who is urging you to plead the promises. Ask Him for more grace to pray–a desire and delight in prayer, more of the Spirit of supplication and intercession. The evangelization of the world depends first of all upon a revival of prayer. Our greatest need—in spite of what we may imagine—is the need for the forgotten secret of prevailing, all-encompassing prayer. Every child of God has the Holy Spirit within him or her to enable them to pray effectively. God waits to give a full measure of the Spirit, an added boost to our private and collective prayer life. Ask for yourself and for all who would join you for the outpouring of the Spirit of supplication and intercession.
