The Holy Spirit is so many things but is also the true spirit of prayer. The Holy Spirit makes the indwelling Word so real that when we pray, faith rises up enabling us to pray boldly and proclaim the promises of God in our lives which bring glory to God. The Holy Spirit encourages us to intercede for others and to pray for ourselves. Paul told the Ephesians to pray at all times and on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. (Eph. 6:18)
Jesus often withdrew by himself to pray and to enjoy intimacy with his Father. At times He offered up prayers with fervency and tears. His prayers enabled Him to face every challenge. This was not a person who was new to faith but the Son of God, the Holy One Himself. Also, the apostle Paul who wrote much of the New Testament says in Romans 8:26, “In the same way the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.” If our Savior sought out intentional prayer time with the Father, surely we should too. And if Paul asked for the Spirit’s help in interceding for others, we ought also do the same.
All of us at Katelyn’s Fund rely heavily on the Holy Spirit’s guidance as we humbly seek to minister to and pray for adoptive families and orphans. We believe, and have experienced personally, that our Heavenly Father is faithful and that the Holy Spirit is at work in all who truly seek to hear Him.
We are committed to praying for you and your families. We are available to pray with you. Please contact the prayer team for prayer.
