What is ‘praying in the Spirit’ and how do we pray in this way? — by Stuart Olyott
There is such a thing as ‘praying in the Holy Spirit,’ which is clearly taught in the Bible, both in Jude v.20 and Ephesians 6:18, and is linked to our spiritual growth and spiritual warfare success.
What it is
The great themes of the Lord’s Prayer are mostly or entirely absent from what we have to say; this is not ‘praying in the Spirit,’ because the Word that he has inspired tells us what themes our Saviour expects us to cover. The believer’s heart becomes awestruck, silent, and prayer-filled.
Doing as we are told
We are commanded in the Bible to pray “in the Spirit.” This means that we enter a place of prayer and begin to pray, and somewhere along the way, the spirit of prayer takes hold of us, invading our souls with fervour, faith, and urgency.
