The Bible is very clear about our attitude toward the Holy Spirit. As Ephesians 4:30 warns us: “do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God.” Yet we typically do this all the time, most frequently by ignoring Him. His still small voice for us becomes drowned out in our own selfishness and self-centeredness. Tom move on in our relationship with God, we must be in communication with the Holy Spirit also, or all is in vain.
The following prayer will help us to do something toward readdressing our wrong attitudes and our inaction to the Holy Spirit and His Words to us.
Dear Holy Spirit, I’m stuck. I don’t know which way to go. I can’t get out. I am sorry that I have tried to get my own way and followed my own interests without You. Please forgive me Holy Spirit. I yield myself before You. I desire the spiritual union with Jesus, that the Bible talks about. Will You grant that to me? Will you come to my aid?
Holy Spirit, I’m sorry I have insulted You. I’ve done my best to ignore You. I have trusted in myself and in my own strength. Forgive me and deliver me from the spirit of bondage, I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
The foregoing prayer is extracted from the book “Called to Conquer: Finding Your Assignment in the Kingdom of God” by Derek Prince.
