Help is Here!

Do you ever feel weak and alone in your prayer life? Do you feel that you have no help or support? Well think about this; help is on the way!

Do you realize how much help you have with your prayer life? First, we have a Father in heaven who loves us and wants to give us good things. James 1:17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift comes down from the Father above…” That’s the heart of our heavenly Father.

Next, Jesus, the Son of God is our “access code” to the Father. He tells us in John 14:13; “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son”. Romans 8:34 tells us that Jesus is “at the right had of the God, who indeed is interceding for us”. Wow, while you pray, he is praying. You’ve got help.

Also, the Holy Spirit is also helping us. According to Rom. 8:26 and 27 says, “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God”. Did you catch that? He is praying for you and He knows what to pray because He knows the will of God.

So, next time you feel at a loss for what to pray for and you feel like you are praying alone, remember, the Father wants to give us good gifts, the Son gives us access to the Father and also helps by interceding for us. The Holy Spirit is also involved, helping us in our weakness and praying for us, as well. Keep praying!
