PRAYER: I Need Thee Holy Spirit
Eternal God, Father of all, Self-Existing One. I come to lean on thine Omnipotence, I come to lean on thine Omnipresence, I come to lean on thine Omniscience. Yes LORD, I am here to fully, completely lean on thine immutability for spiritual, physical, emotional, financial, social and mental support. El Olam, thou everlasting God, who can trust in you and lose? Who has ever placed their faith in you and was made ashamed? Who has ever humbly come to you and has committed their soul, their spirit and their body to you and you have resisted or turned them away? “He that cometh unto you, you will in no wise cast out”. Christ hath received us to the glory of God, the Father. Neither have I asked anything in the name of Jesus and have not received. You love me. You saved me and it is your pleasure to give me your kingdom. Father, I come to ask today, that you flood my soul, my spirit, my body, my life, my affairs, my relationships, my thoughts with thine Holy Spirit. Thou, Holy Spirit of God, you have been ignored, you have been bashed, ill-spoken of and discredited but today, today, my LORD, treat me not as I am supposed to be treated. Forgive me. Forgive me and cleanse me from the evil that I have harbored. Wash me. Wash my thoughts and bring them captive to thee, thou Blessed Holy Spirit. I need you. I need you in every area of my life. I ask you to come O’ thou Director of Activities and be in total control of the events of my personal life, my emotional life, my physical and spiritual life. Guide my way. Guide my thoughts and my actions. Have complete rule. Filter my thoughts & my words, and my actions will resemble that of Christ. Spirit of the Living God, teach me and guide me into every truth. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be limited, exclusively limited to thy word and to the Holy Spirit dictations. I need thee to hold my hand and guide me in the way of truth for God desires truth in the inward part and then in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. Revealer of Secrets, ride upon the altar of my heart as you moved upon the waters of the deep. Move thou upon the waters of my emotions and bring peace to every tumultuous situation. Calm the angry fears and flush them away along with any doubt that may be lingering for an opportunity to manifest itself. Holy Spirit teach me how to pray. Teach me how to pray because I do not know how to pray. Please teach me how to discern between right & wrong, between good & evil, between darkness and light. Holy Spirit, please come and teach me how to fellowship one with another, how to love, how to detect the devices of Satan as opposed to the reproof, the correcting and/or instructing hand of God. Holy Spirit, thou ever-faithful Guide, please teach me how to remain faithful to the cause of Christ. How to carry out God’s instructions to the letter without fear/favor. Teach me, how to follow your leading. Wake me up to pray. Nudge me when I need to pay more attention to detail and alert me when Satan has me or anyone pertaining to me on his agenda and tell me how and what to pray for. Buzz me when God is near so I will not miss out on His presence as Jacob did and suffer the consequences. Holy Spirit, I give myself to you. I am yours LORD. Abide with me, lead me, talk with me, thou Unspeakable Gift of God. You are our hope thou Spirit of Promise. Never leave me nor forsake me. I am nothing without you. I can do nothing without you. Without you, it is extremely difficult to put words together. Without you, my learning is in vain; my certificates are mere pieces of paper that could be lit/set on fire. Holy Spirit, I need you all day long. I need you in the morning. I need you in the noon time and I need you as the sun goes down. If you leave me Holy Spirit, the deep will compass me about; the deep will engulf me and my life will be made as straw is trodden down for the dunghill. Spirit, Holy Spirit, there is only but one of you. You lift up & you put down; you create and you destroy. Holy Spirit, please have mercy on me and raise me up as the poor out of the dust and lift me up as the beggar from the dunghill. I am buried in my reproach but, you Holy Spirit are the answer to my situation. Your creative power can do all things. Holy Spirit, precious Holy Spirit of God, I bow before you and I give myself to you so you can have me, direct me, guide me, and teach me. You can be my companion, my friend, my lover and my LORD in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
