A Prayer to Receive The Holy Spirit



This is a Prayer you can say to receive the Holy Ghost. I have tried to explain,
as simply as possible, what the Holy Spirit is
and why we need to say the Prayer to receive the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is your Comforter. Which means: Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener and Stand By. The Holy Ghost was sent to teach you all things and guide you into ALL truth
(John 14:26, 16:12-13)

I have been a Spirit Filled Believer for about 3 years now, and there is nothing like it! The Holy Spirit is REAL and the Holy Spirit is what is going to guide you to get many things done. He is going to help you fullfill your purpose here and have the strength to do the things that God wants you to do and get them done smoothly! AMEN! Many of the things I have done in my life, have been with the help of the Holy Spirit- including many pages on these websites.

You are no longer alone. The Holy Spirit is the Comforter Who will abide with you forever. However, God is NOT going to force you to receive the Holy Spirit.

At Salvation, you were reborn as the Holy Spirit recreated your spirit and came to live inside of you. But his job does not stop with imparting the nature of God into your spirit. He wants you to let his energizing power explode in you and transform you into a effective witness and put you in contact with the deep things of God.
(I Corinthians 14:4, 2:10)

God intends that you are a witness of Jesus and pray for people. The Holy Spirit, through you, will be free to do what is necessary to bring Salvation, Healing, Deliverance or whatever the need might be. This empowering for Ministry is a result of receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. It is for EVERYONE in the Body of Christ, because God gave HIS Spirit to the church on the
day of the Pentecost.

You do not have to beg God to give you the empowering of His Spirit. All any born again believer has to do is invite the Holy Spirit to have complete acess to (his/her) life. He will clean up the temple. He will help you get rid of habits; he will move the unclean things out of your life. He is the POWER that gets these done.

You will be able to speak in tongues, Which is speaking in another language. When you pray in tongues you are praying "in the Spirit" Praying in tongues is the voice of your Spirit. It is speaking Spirit mysteries unto God. You will not understand the words coming out of your mouth, but this is Awesome. You will begin to get really comfortable with this "prayer language" and begin speaking more fluently and praying in tongues more and more. This is also a good way to pray, rather than praying in our own words and language. If you are unsure what to pray for, your Spirit can pray. Praying is very important to do Every-day. Sometimes, we may be at a loss as to what exactly to pray for. When I am feeling this way, I pray in the Spirit. If you like {and it helps you} you can also picture the person(s) face(es) that you are praying for, while you are praying in the Spirit. God will use you as HIS Vessel. You may be asked, to pray for many, many, many people.
Remember, Stay Steadfast in Your Prayers.
Pray Without Ceasing

1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.

1 Corinthians 14:14 If I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth,
but my understanding is unfruitful.

GOD will NOT force you to speak in tongues. The Holy Spirit will supply the words, but you have to supply the sound. No where, in the New Testament, does it say that the Holy Spirit does the speaking.

And they were filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues,
as the Holy Spirit gave them Utterance.(Acts 2:4)

You can Pray to be able to interpret, when you speak in an "unknown tongue". As you grow in this area, you will do this more and more.

I Corinthians 14:13

Please pray this prayer to receive the Holy Spirit. If you ask, the Word of God Promises that you shall receive. You just humble yourself before God; you stand open and ready.
You give him your mind, your body, and your spirit.

You are NOT to go by your feelings,
You receive the Holy Spirit by FAITH and not Feelings.

My Heavenly Father,
I am a believer. I am your child and you are my Father, Jesus is my Lord. I believe with all my heart your word is true.

Your Word says that if I will ask I will receive the Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord, I am asking you to fill me to overflowing with your precious Holy Spirit. Jesus Baptize me in the Holy Spirit, Because of Your Word, I believe that I now receive and I thank you for it. I believe that the Holy Spirit is within me and by Faith I accept it.
Now Holy Spirit, rise up within me as I praise my God. I fully expect to speak with other tongues as You give me the utterance.
Thank God and Praise him for Baptizing you in the Holy Spirit. From this Moment on you are a Spirit Filled Baptized Believer.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Luke 12:11-12
And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say: For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

May God Bless You.
Melissa
