Christians pray above circumstances – above earthly powers and beyond the limits of mental and emotional involvement. When the Holy Spirit prays, He prays this way – through us!
— For you, O LORD, are the Most High over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods. (Ps 97:9)
— I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, p ower and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. (Eph. 1:18-23, NKJV)
As we pray from this higher perspective we are empowered by the Holy Spirit who reveals facts we could not have known otherwise. Because He leads us, we pray cognitively as facts and details are revealed to us. The Holy Spirit prays this way – through us!
— Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord: The Word of the Lord had not yet been revealed to him… The Lord continued to appear at Shiloh, and there he revealed himself to Samuel through his word. (I Sam 3:7, 21)
—He (Jesus) said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus responded, “Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you but My Father who is in heaven.” (Matt 16:15-17, NKJV)
Father, I believe spiritual knowledge is gained through Your Holy Spirit, through revelation as He reveals it—by the Spirit. Lord, I submit my life to You as a container of prayer—prayer that is revealed by You to build Your Kingdom on earth, and prayer that expresses unlimited knowledge in order to do so. Thank you for the sense knowledge I have through my five senses, and thank you for a higher perspective and for added knowledge to pray as the Spirit prays—according to the will of God.
