THE ARMOR OF GOD
Paul recognizes this by requesting prayers for himself, knowing that he cannot succeed on his own. Prayer in the Spirit is the recognition that we have direct access to God through Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit directs our prayer, creates the prayer within us, and empathizes with us.
St Paul encourages us to pray at all times with “all kinds of prayers and requests.” I pray using the ACTS method, which stands for Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication. Admit your weaknesses and sins of commission and omission. Review all of God’s blessings in your life and be grateful.
