Heavenly Father, I come to You through the Name of my Savior Jesus Christ with a thankful heart for You having the Holy Spirt of God dwell within me. This blessing happened at the time I put my faith in Jesus as my Savior. 1 Corinthians 6:19 “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?”
I acknowledge my dependence on You and that apart from You, there is nothing good. You are the source of all righteousness. 2 Corinthians 3:5 “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God.” Teach me to let go of my own strength and to recognize that You want to be my comforter and guide me into all truth through the Holy Spirit. By obeying You and Your guidance, I can thwart the constant negative power of the flesh that is still living within me.
It is a beautiful privilege to have Your Holy Spirit lift me up in my times of weakness and distress. In those times when I can’t find the right words to say, I can share my heart with You and You will intercede and straighten out my prayer. Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
In Jesus’ Name, I ask You to daily direct me to yield myself to the Holy Spirit for full control over all parts of my life. Ephesians 5:18b “Be filled with the Spirit.” Amen.
