Fasting Day 12: Being Filled With the Holy Spirit – Prayers for Bearing the ‘The Fruits of the Spirit’
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” – Galatians 5:22-23
It is only the Holy Spirit that will help us to please God in our today’s world. He is the only One that will empower us to walk in joy, peace and kindness. Jesus said…
“I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear [to hear] them now.
But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth [full and complete truth]. For He will not speak on His own initiative, but He will speak whatever He hears [from the Father—the message regarding the Son], and He will disclose to you what is to come [in the future].
He will glorify and honor Me, because He (the Holy Spirit) will take from what is Mine and will disclose it to you. – John 16:12-14 (AMP)
Every Child of God who wants to have victory in life must desire a strong relationship with the Holy Spirit. We must learn to surrender to Him and His ministry on a day by day basis. He illuminates the scriptures when we read it, gives our heart rest and confidence regarding the future and guides us in taking the right decisions to please God and be more productive in life.
So today, I bring us to remembrance of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. I call on us to dedicate today and pray for His Fruits and Gifts.
Today, we’ll dedicate it to the Holy Spirit. We’ll talk to Him all through the day and ask Him to manifest His fruits and gifts in our lives.
According to our text, the fruits of the Holy Spirit include:
- Forbearance (Patience),
When these fruits are in our lives, in abundance, we bear fruits for the Kingdom of God and receive the promises of God. We overcome the devil on a daily basis and win in all situations.
Select three or four prayers from any of the prayers below and meditate and pray them all through the day. As you go to bed, make out time to pray out the remaining prayers or all of it and thank God for answered prayers.
