Being Filled With the Holy Spirit

Key Scripture: “Be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Eph. 5:18-20)

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to be with us forever. He is the paraclete, the divine Comforter, the Spirit of truth. Thank you for your promise to give the Holy Spirit to those who ask you. Fill me with your Spirit Lord, as I wait before you.

I receive your Holy Spirit now, Lord, and want to live in such a way that I would never grieve Him. Because the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me, I have newness of life. Thank you for the convicting and transforming power of your Spirit, Lord. What a miracle it is to realize that the Spirit of my Lord Jesus Christ dwells in me.

Because your Spirit dwells within me, Lord, I am able to be led by Him just as Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. Help me to follow the leading of your Holy Spirit, for as many as are led by the Spirit are your sons, Lord.

You promised that you would not leave us comfortless, so you sent your Spirit to full us and guide us. Help me to see what that really means. You, Lord Jesus, possess all power in heaven and earth, and you have promised to empower me with your Spirit. Because you have gone to be with your Father, I am able to accomplish the things you desire. For your life and power dwell within me by your Spirit.

Your Spirit gives me power to be your witness and to speak your Word with boldness.

Being filled with your Spirit, Lord, I will give myself continually to prayer and your Word. Help me to remember that the infilling of the Holy Spirit brings wisdom and faith and help me to draw upon the power of your Spirit each day of my life.

In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
