Key #7 to Effective Prayer - The Holy Spirit's Help
By Janet Conley
Today I want to talk to you about another key to effective prayer, and that is the help of the Holy Spirit. I am so glad we have the Holy Spirit to help us, aren't you?
"Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you."
Do you know who the Helper is? It is the Holy Spirit. Earlier in John 14:26 he had told His disciples this,
"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."
The Helper, the Holy Spirit, has been sent to come alongside and teach us all things. He will teach you how to pray; He will teach you things about prayer. The Holy Spirit will help you in that way.
Then He said, "[He will] bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you." The Holy Spirit will help us remember the promises. The things that God has taught us He will bring to our remembrance, so we can pray effectively.
The Holy Spirit is like having a personal assistant. A personal assistant will help you remember your appointments or show you something you do not know. Every moment of every day He is there for us.
Take time to praise God today for His provision of the Holy Spirit. And remember He is there to help you in prayer.
