God is Great! Jesus, the Holy Spirit and Prayer

by | Sep 13, 2021 | Prayer & Devotion

In days like these, I’m more than sure my dear Christian friends are in prayer. We don’t need to look very far to see the brokenness in the world today. It’s been a few weeks that I had a session or two dedicated to prayer. However, I’ve been including prayer in each session. It’s just on my heart and mind to visit that now. Can I let your mind meditate for a moment?

Do you remember being a child and shouting for help to someone you knew you could trust? We all have. When it comes to prayer, do we have that same confidence? Or, do we say, “I’ve done all I can do. I guess I’ll pray about it”; where prayer is the last resort? Whenever any issue arises, we should be quick to lift a prayer to our great God.

Have you thought much about Jesus and the Holy Spirit praying? Here’s a few Scriptures that I’m sure you’ll love.

“Therefore, He is able also to save forever (completely, perfectly, for eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede and intervene on their behalf [with God]” (Heb. 7:25, AMP).

“In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words. And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because the Spirit intercedes [before God] on behalf of God’s people in accordance with God’s will” (Rom. 8:26-27, AMP).

The first rich Scripture speaks of Jesus; just a gem of a reminder we are always saved. He also LIVES to intercede and intervene on behalf of His children. Can I get a “Praise the Lord”? The second Scripture is on the Holy Spirit; we’ll be visiting this one role in the podcast this week.

As we personally go to the Lord in prayer daily, we would be able to do this:

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 4:16, NKJV).

If the world looks so broken that it breaks our hearts, I can only imagine how it breaks the Lord’s heart. Let’s be quick to go to the Lord in prayer, and let’s exercise our faith thanking God for answers before we see them.

Dear friends, we have been diving into sharing Jesus with those around us as well as growing with the Lord. We are working from my two books, Heaven Bound and Walking The Talk. You can read along and listen to my recent episode of Loved Always. My website, lovedalways.net, has links to purchase each book. Bring along your Bible, as it is the foundation for any book I write to help believers. There are countless Scriptures in these books but we will only be able to touch the surface within this framework.

I would like to make sure you have great resources that help you in your journey with the great God we love, serve and worship. Need a tool for group Bible study or new members at your church? Yes, both books are great resources for that too!

As believers, we get the privilege and opportunity to make Jesus famous. Will you join me? The website now has a donation link. I would also invite you to sow into this ministry and partner with me as I continue to share Jesus within every avenue God opens to me. Your prayers and support are always most appreciated.

Please enjoy the verse of the day or leave a prayer request at lovedalways.net.

“The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD cause His face to shine on you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His face to you, And give you peace'” (Num. 6:24-26, NASB).
