PRAYER IN THE SPIRIT
ROMANS 8:26-28 From The Working Translation*
26 Likewise, the spirit also jointly helps us with our weakness. Moreover, we do not know what we should pray for as necessary, but the spirit itself makes intercession with inexpressible groanings.
27 He Who searches the hearts knows what the thinking of the spirit is, because it makes intercession for the holy [sanctified] ones in accordance with God.
28 We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, that is, to those who are called ones in accordance with His purpose.
I CORINTHIANS 14:1-4
1 Pursue the [right kind of] love. Be zealous of spiritual matters, and moreover that you may prophesy.
2 In fact, he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, because no one understands what he hears himself speaking. By the spirit, he is speaking mysteries.
3 However, he who prophesies speaks to men edification and encouragement and comfort.
4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church.
II TIMOTHY 1:6,14
6 For this reason, I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is in you by the laying on of my hands.
14 Guard the good deposit entrusted to you by means of the holy spirit dwelling in us.
20 (KJV) But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.
20 However, you beloved, edifying yourselves by
1. your most holy [sanctified] believing and
2. praying in holy spirit.
