The Greatest Resource Available
As a True Believer faces the suf
As a True Believer faces the sufferings of this
life, he has Christian Prayer, the greatest resource imaginable available to
As a True Believer you have the right to approach God
whenever needed, and to ask God for the strength to walk through, and to conquer
the suffering you are facing.
That is what prayer is all about.
In Romans 8:18-27 Paul says at leased two things about
1. Believers do not know how to pray as we should.
Note the word "we." Paul includes
himself in this, which is to say no believer knows how to pray. By nature, we
are weak and lacking the power...
• for prolonged concentration.
• to avoid distractions.
• to stop all wandering thoughts.
• to prevent emotional changes.
• to govern varying affections.
• to know what lies in the future, even one hour
• to know what is really best for us and for our
growth in any given situation.
Withstanding the Enemy: Overcoming Hindrances to Answered Prayer
2. The Holy Spirit helps our infirmities. It is true
that He helps us in all our infirmities, but the point of the passage deals only
The Holy Spirit
Note: it is assumed that you are praying.
The Spirit is not going to force you to pray.
It is our responsibility to take the time to get alone and
pray. When we do this, the Spirit begins to act both upon and for us.
Note this also: the Spirit "helpeth our
infirmities." What this means is that whatever our particular weakness is, He
helps that weakness.
If you are truly sincere about prayer and you are wrestling
to pray, then the Spirit will help you to control your concentration,
distractions, wandering thoughts, emotional changes, and affections.
How does He do that?
As the True Christian Believer struggles to pray by
controlling his or her own flesh and its weakness, the Holy Spirit takes our
mind and emotions and...
• quiets and silences them.
• stirs and excites them.
• draws and pulls them.
• directs and guides them.
He will lead you to pray as you should, by helping you
control and subject the flesh and allowing you to concentrate upon the prayer.
