Exposed! The real truth concerning the blessings of a Christian

In the Christian church of today is established a leprous teaching about the blessings of God. It is a teaching that...

Tested by fire; narrow is the path that leads to the kingdom of God

Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart.

Prayer model of the Holy Spirit

Topic: Prayer model of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of intercessions, supplications and all forms of prayer. He teaches prayer model and only Him births men who can pray.

There is no prayer particular model with the Holy Spirit. In a better way: the Holy Spirit does not have a definite prayer model or style.

8. For as the wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

John 3:8

The Lord’s prayer model and the five finger praying model only tells us what should be in prayer but it does not teach us how to pray them. And although I tried to explain how they ought to be prayed, I must tell you that I have only given just about 5% explanation compared to what the Holy Spirit can teach us when He is in us.

The Jerusalem temple model teaches us how to enter into the Hollies of Hollies and make intercessions, but it does not actually tell us how to intercede.

Prayer models and their theories may come from here and there but it does not teach burden for prayer. Burdens that can make a man pray and cry profusely like a baby. Burden that can wake you up by midnight and sleep disappears instantly. Praying models don’t teach that.

Burden for prayer is a full topic of its own. It is one of the most powerful assets of the prayer model of the Holy Spirit. A man praying with burden prays more than a man without burden. That man without burden may last days or weeks, but the man with burden goes on praying as long as the burden remains. If the burden burns for 20 years, trust me, the man is going to pray for 20 solid years for whatever the issue is.

Have we not heard? A man prayed for 12 good years for revival to come to Wales. He was drowned in burden for revival. No man born of a woman can teach that but the Holy Spirit.

You could read my blog and posts on social media and you would become hungry for prayers that birth revival, but when you get into your room, how are prayers that birth revival prayed? The Holy Spirit’s model.

After praying, how can I be convinced that the burden is lifted? Is faith enough? Faith is always enough when the prayer is enough. But how do I know when the prayer is enough? Who will give me visions and dreams to signify that power has gone out from God? The Holy Spirit.

There are times a Christian may be under attack and you don’t need to follow any model, all you have to do is run riot of fire commands on the devil and his agents. Who teaches the kind of utterance needed for spiritual battle? The Holy Spirit.

Sometimes times we may desire to pray but there is no strength to pray. Does this happen? Yes! it does. But who gives the strength to pray? The Holy Spirit.

There are deliverance or prayer sessions that you don’t need to fight or pray anything. Just like Joshua in the bible, God would rather want you praise Him for miracles to happen. Who teaches when we have to sing songs for power to flow? The Holy Spirit.

There are prayers you don’t cry for; you just command them and they happen. There are prayer points that are more effective when prayed prophetically. There are challenges you cannot overcome until you wait a longer time in prayer. Who teaches all these? The Holy Spirit.

The Holy Ghost is everything we need to effectively and efficiently pray.

Men of the Spirit are true men of prayers. “Often we hear people say “I have been baptized by the Spirit”. If that baptism of the Spirit does not redefine our prayer life and help us pray in power then we have not received what God wants us to have”- Leonard Ravenhill.

ALSO READ  The Lord's Prayer practical praying model (contd.)

The prayer model of the Holy Spirit follows no particular direction. This however does not mean that the “Hallowed be thy name” and “Forgive us our trespasses” should be neglected. It does not mean that a man with the Spirit of God cannot follow the models and do wonders with them. It also does not mean that the Holy Spirit rejects the models of prayer for it was Him who authored the Lord’s Prayer.

It rather implies: that the Holy Spirit will take from the models and teach us how to effectively pray them. The prayer points that need more time, He will inspire or burden us for it. The prayer points that need to be approached differently, He will teach us the approach to them.

12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He [a]will take of Mine and declare it to you.

John 16:12-15

Jesus and the bible has given us the full models of prayers but the Holy Spirit teaches how to pray. The prayer model of the Holy Spirit is ultimate because you are praying exactly for what should be prayed for.

For Instance: one night at around 4:00 AM, the Holy Ghost woke me up to pray. I was blank because I was so worn out having returned home few minutes to midnight. I knelt down and asked “What do you want me to pray?” and He replied “Pray for the Church”.

The other time, He asked me to pray for brethren who were possibly going to be martyred in Northern Nigeria.

During those days, I did not have to bring up the Lord’s prayer model or the five finger model, I just thanked God, asked for cleansing of sins and then spent about one hour praying for the church.

Christianity stutters and churches suffer because we underrate the power of the One and only Gift Jesus gave to the Church – The Holy Spirit.

There is no Christianity without the Holy Spirit. There is no effective prayer without Him and no Christian will ever go to heaven who does not have the Holy Spirit residing in him.

Finally I would want to admonish believers to search deep to be filled with the Holy Spirit. If you go to a Church where they don’t teach and believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, exit that Church.

Time is coming and is close that only those who know the word of God and how to effectively pray will remain as Children of God. And we have known that effective praying is a gift of the Holy Spirit.

Therefore let us desire and seek the Holy Spirit and His power; for only those who are led by the Spirit of God are the true sons of God (Romans 8:14).
