The Holy spirit is not the Power of God, the Holy Spirit carries the Power . 4. Answered Prayers: The Holy spirit helps us to pray, Romans 8:26-27. 36. Dear holy spirit, continue to show forth your manifest presence in my life in Jesus name

The Holy spirit is not the Power of God, the Holy Spirit carries the Power of God. As a Christian, you cannot manifest or feel Gods presence without the Holy spirit, it is the Holy Spirit that separates Christianity from every other religion in the world. Let’s look at some Characteristics of the Holy Spirit. The holy spirit gives us utterances in our prayers. The Holy spirit in us guarantees answers to our prayers. Dear holy spirit, continue to show forth your manifest presence in my life in Jesus name. 37. Let my hand become the sword of fire to cut down evil trees, in the name of Jesus.

The Holy Spirit is a unique person and not simply a power or an influence. A Prayer to the Holy Spirit. I remember thinking as a child that the Holy Spirit was more like a ghost than a real, concrete being, but that kind of thinking can damage how we relate to the Spirit and interact with him. We have to understand that the Spirit of God, the third person of the Trinity, is personal, Begg said. As a person, He may be grieved (Eph. 4:30), He may be quenched in terms of the exercise of His will (1 Thess. 5:19), and He may be resisted (Acts 7:51). Holy Spirit, You are God. I praise you because you are holy, and I thank you for dwelling in my heart.

Holy Spirit of light and love, you are the substantial love of the Father and the Son; hear my prayer. Bounteous bestower of most precious gifts, grant me a strong and living faith which makes me accept all revealed truths and shape my conduct in accord with them. Give me a most confident hope in all divine promises which prompts me to abandon myself unreservedly to you and your guidance. Infuse into me a love of perfect goodwill, and act according to God's least desires. Make me love not only my friends but my enemies as well, in imitation of Jesus Christ who through you offered himself.
