When you don't know what to pray...Pray in the Spirit. Have you ever wondered what happens in heaven when you pray in the Spirit? When you pray in the Spirit, the smoke of incense fills the throne room of God. "Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. And he was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints,ascended before God from the angel's hand." Revelation 8:3-4. In the tabernacle Moses was instructed to build was an altar used in free will offerings. There is an golden altar before the throne in heaven(on earth as it IS in heaven). When we pray in the Spirit we activate that incense being burned in front of the throne. God really likes the incense. It creates a fragrance that God loves to smell, it's our Spirit prayer!!! When we pray in the Spirit, it is by our will. We present it with thanksgiving and love in our hearts. Holy Spirit will give us the words, we must provide the voice and the will. "Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name". Hebrews 13:15. Our Spirit prayer is the flow to the throne room by our will, earth to heaven. When God moves, He energizes His will through Holy Spirit(power), heaven to earth! Recognizing the change of the flow is part of us learning to be led by the Holy Spirit! Let us ALL pray more in the Spirit. Practice doesn't make perfect, it makes proficient! AMEN
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
