Prayer is communion. It is our lifeline to heaven and connecting point to God, an inseparable tether.
Jesus modeled to us how to pray all throughout the bible, but what does prayer do?
– It’s how we remain in contact with the Father and our first response in every circumstance.
– It’s how we bless our enemies: “Bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you” Luke 6:28
After being released from prison, the first thing Peter and John did was report their experience to the elders and pray. “After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.” Acts 4:31
Prayer with the Holy Spirit
So what about when we do not know what to pray? Or how? The Holy Spirit inside of us cries out to our Abba Father, interceding on our behalf. You can trust that God put Himself inside of you so that your communion could stay forever connected. You can also trust that
“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever the Spirit of truth.” John 14:16-17
What a perfect truth! The Holy Spirit has a home inside of us, teaching us how to pray, guiding our thoughts and ultimately our lives.
