What are Prayers to the Holy Spirit?

It can be recalled that in the New Testament details, a tender relationship between the Holy Spirit and Jesus was solidified through the earthly life and the ministry. Jesus is stated in The Gospels of Matthew and Luke and the Nicene Creed as “conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary”. Therefore, the Holy Spirit descended on Jesus in the form of a dove during his baptism. During the Last Supper, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to his disciples.

Being a Christian is about having the Holy Spirit dwell in individual believers. This enables us to live in a life of faith and righteousness because the Holy Spirit intercedes and supports our every act. The Holy Spirit also acts as our comforter and Paraclete especially when we are undergoing a life of difficulty. For this, many prayers fo the Holy Spirit is directed to ask for favors in order to overcome challenges or succeed in our plans.

Let these prayers for the Holy Spirit lead you as you ask for guidance.

A Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Lord, we acknowledge that on our own, our efforts to pray are not enough. We try very hard to pray on our own, yet we fail. We are not as prayerful as much as we should be, and we do not pray with the right attitude as well.

For this, we ask you, Lord, to let your Spirit lead our prayer time. Allow us not to be overwhelmed by our concerns. Allow us to follow the leading of your Spirit. May we recognize Your presence and be at peace as we pray.

Thank You, Lord, for letting us draw near to you. Thank You for calming our hearts and relieving us of worry. You have said in your Word not to worry about anything, but in prayer and petition, let our requests be made known to You. Now, as we stand before Your throne, we present our concerns to You.

We also acknowledge Your sovereignty, Lord. So as we present these concerns, may Your Spirit give peace to our hearts as You answer our prayers. Your answers may not be the ones we wanted, but Your will be done, Lord. We ask Your Spirit to give us submitting hearts so that we may yield to Your will. In Your Name, we pray, Amen.
