You’ve Got Help!


Let God’s Spirit help you. God gave you the Holy Spirit as your helper in all things.

Sheila went through her prayer journal, she had written down the things and people she wanted to pray for: her challenges at school, the conflict between her parents, her grandma’s health, the leaders in her nation and all the world, the unbelievers and even some of her friends who were hurting because of one challenge or the other. It was such an endless list; staring at it, she immediately felt overwhelmed wondering in her mind how to go about it.

Just like Sheila, you may have countless demands and challenges in your life that you’d want to pray about, but which could be mentally and physically exerting. Rather that exert yourself trying to pray “from your head” about these things, depend on the Holy Spirit to help you. He’ll help you pray when you don’t know what to say or how to say it. He’ll give you the right and accurate words with which to express your heart to God.

It’s His ministry to help you pray in line with God’s perfect will, “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 groaning’s which cannot be uttered” (Romans 8:26). So trust Him to help you and He’ll guide you on how and what to pray about.
