Prayer To Welcome The Holy Spirit

When I pray to welcome the holy spirit, it reminds me of who I am and what the Lord has given. The power of Christ generates change inside us, and when we welcome the holy spirit we become a part of the divine plan that is in God’s agenda. Our soul is now filled with joy and our body becomes clean because of his presence.

Through the years of ministry and teaching, I have found that many times people don’t fully understand how to receive the Holy Spirit or what to expect when they do receive.

In the Bible, we learn of a time of prayer in which Jesus invited his followers to “abide” (live) in the Holy Spirit. The Church Fathers considered that the material world would be present during this new age in which Christ and God’s presence would be more intense than ever. To embrace this reality, Christians are to offer continual prayer that the Holy Spirit will guide them through our daily routine, giving us strength and patience as we face every difficulty.

We sincerely ask, Holy Spirit, that you fill us with your presence. Use our bodies to be a living instrument of your peace and love. Today our hearts are open and ready to receive you in new ways. Come Holy Spirit and renew us!

Prayer To Welcome The Holy Spirit

One of the mysteries of the Christian faith is the nature of God, because there is a picture painted of Him as three-in-one. The Trinity refers to the idea that God is three separate, unique identities that are also one being. These identities are The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The last one in that list is perhaps the most mysterious, but the one that guides Christians in their daily lives. People often pray to the Father and the Son, but sometimes feel hesitant to pray to the Holy Spirit. The Bible makes it clear the Holy Spirit is a part of prayer, with it guiding believers and even providing a method of communication between someone and God when they just cannot articulate their needs and pain in prayer.

Invoking the Spirit in prayer is acceptable, especially when asking for help in something for which the Bible says the Holy Spirit is there to help.
