In this article, we will look at some prayers for the Holy Spirit that you can use during your alone time with the Lord.
The work and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit are crucial to the believer and for the whole body of Christ. We see this when we read in Acts 2:17,
“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”
This is why it’s important that we pray for the Holy Spirit to come, fill us, and be poured out. And that’s exactly what we are going to do today! We will go through 8 different prayers that will help you during your devotional time with the Lord or as an aid to pray in a group.
Before Using Prayers for the Holy Spirit
In all my posts with written prayers, I share the importance of making these kinds of prayers personal. Our Father in heaven desires for us to speak from our heart and sometimes that gets lost when we pray written prayers.
Some ways we can prevent that is by personalizing the prayers, add your feelings and desires for the Holy Spirit. You can even use these prayers as a springboard to help you jump into prayer.
