Prayer 2021 – June 20 – The Holy Spirit Takes Hold with Us in Prayer pt 1

Scripture For Today:

Jeremiah 10:23

“Lord, I know that people’s lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps.”

The Holy Spirit Takes Hold With Us In Prayer pt 1


We have been studying these last several sessions about the Holy Spirit and Prayer. We have been looking at Romans 8:26 as our foundational scripture, among others. But I want to draw your attention to something that has blessed me immensely over the years – and maybe it will bless you as well.

In Romans 8:26, it says, “…the Spirit also HELPETH our infirmities…”

Now, what the heck does that mean?  Well, I decided to ask the Lord and find out. Amen!

The Greek word (and I am not a Greek scholar and do not pretend to play one on television, YouTube or podcasts – amen), the Greek word literally means, “to take hold together with and against.”

So this scripture, literally says, the Holy Spirit helps take hold together with us in prayer – against our infirmities. Amen! Whatever that infirmity may be. Sickness, disease, cancer, headaches, toothaches, ingrown toenails or whatever. Amen!

It does not matter if the infirmity is physical, like sickness. It doesn’t matter if it is mental, like depression. It doesn’t matter if it is spiritual, like demonic possession. The Holy Spirit of THE Most High God comes together with YOUR spirit man and “takes hold together – against” that infirmity!

Let’s say I needed help to move a couch out of my downstairs basement area and load it into a truck. I call my grandson to come over and help.  I’m expecting him to come over and do what?

Take hold WITH ME on that couch and help me overcome the weight of that thing and get it up the stairs and out of my house! Amen!

Well, if you have any infirmity, and ask the Holy Spirit to help, He will do the same thing. He will come along WITH YOU and HELP you to get that infirmity out of your house! Your Spiritual House – which is your Body which is what? The Temple of the Holy Spirit who dwells within you!

I pray you are getting this! Glory to God!

Let’s Pray!
