Prayer Tip: Characteristics of Praying in the Spirit

Eph. 6:18 ‘praying always in the Spirit’, what are some of the characteristics of doing so?

Praying in faith – believing that He is and that He rewards those who seek Him.  Heb. 11:6

Confident that God causes all things to work together for good.  Rom. 8:28

Praying with thanksgiving rather than worry and anxiety – Phil. 4:6

Entering His presence with praise and adoration and thanksgiving – Ps. 100:4

Being aware that the only way I can stand in His presence is by the blood of Christ continually cleansing me from all sin – Heb. 10:19-22

Praying scripture, particularly the promises of God.

In the book Reese Howells Intercessor he relates that God impressed upon him very clearly to “pray only the prayers that I give you.”  He said the result was victorious prayer that always got answered.  I often ask the Lord to show me what to pray in a situation or for a presenting need.  Then I try to listen and pray what He impresses upon me to pray.

All of this is part of getting to know God.
