Praying in the spirit is another way of reinforcing your prayer. In Mark 14, before His crucifixion, Jesus took His disciples up to a garden to pray. He left them and went a little farther to pray. When He came back, He found them sleeping and said to them: Read Mark 14:38 from your Bible
The forces against us are spiritual, so we have to confront them from the spirit realm, as the flesh hasn’t enough force to handle them. That is why Jesus promised us the Holy Spirit, our Comforter and Helper, to help us transcend the physical realm into the heavenly.
Until you are able to engage the help of the Holy Spirit in prayer, you may never experience true breakthrough in your Christian life.
Read Romans 8:26-27 from your Bible
There are forces beyond the natural, which are out to tear down your destiny; you, therefore, need to engage spiritual forces to undo them. Praying in the spirit is the most effective way of subduing such forces.
Read from your Bible what Apostle Paul said in Ephesians 6:12-13,18
Since these forces of opposition operate from the spirit realm, which most times are beyond our human comprehension, God has also given us a weapon that grants us access to the throne room of heaven, which they also do not understand.
Read 1 Corinthians 14:2 from your Bible
When you pray in the Spirit, no one, including the devil, knows what you are saying, as you are speaking to God alone in mysteries.
When you engage the Spirit in prayer, He takes you into heaven’s frequency, enabling you to pray with precision the express will of God for that situation (1 Cor. 2:11). The Holy Spirit Himself intercedes on your behalf. He picks up what is in your heart, presents it to God and in turn delivers the answer from God to you.
Read 1 Corinthians 2:10-11 from your Bible
“…When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” (Isaiah 59:19).
If the enemy is coming against you like a flood, you can’t expect to resist him as a stream. But when you switch over to the spirit, the Holy Spirit helps you to raise a standard against the enemy. What happens when you switch over to the Spirit is that you are releasing the rivers of living water that flows in you as a Spirit-filled believer.
Read John 7:38-39 from your Bible
Your mouth is the outlet for the rivers of God within you. So, when you burst out in tongues, you are releasing that river, which is able to swallow up every flood of the enemy and deliver you out of every predicament.
When your spirit prays, you are praying the will of God. So, you can be confident that your prayers are heard, and when God hears, the victory is sure (1 John 5:14-15).
Read Isaiah 26:9 and John 4:24 from your Bible.
Effectual communication is the one done in the spirit, as God is a Spirit. Praying in the spirit is a spirit-to-Spirit communication, and thus is your surest way of connecting heaven for earthly interventions.
We can therefore approach the throne room of God boldly, communicating in our heavenly language that guarantees victory in prayer. This prayer booster is for the benefit of every believer.
