Rhapsody Hour | The Effect Of Prayer
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered (Romans 8:26).
One of the many blessings of prayer is that it helps us shut out the world, to focus on the Lord and things pertaining to the Kingdom. It's not just the things that we say during the time of prayer that matter, for prayer covers not only the communication or the content, but also our meditation during the times of prayer. Even the seclusion is very important; it provides the opportunity for the Spirit of God to minister to you as you minister to Him.
At the times of prayer, the Holy Spirit can open your eyes. When you pull apart and commune with Him, He opens your eyes to spiritual realities and unveils His thoughts to your spirit.
Whenever it's possible to take time away from everything else to pray, do it. But what if you feel the urge to pray when you're driving, for instance? Speak in tongues, while you drive. You may be on an important assignment during those times of prayers; you can continue with what you're doing; but pray in tongues while you're at it. Understand that life is spiritual, and except you operate from the realm of the Spirit, you could be frustrated.
Dear Father, I thank you for the opportunity to fellowship with you in prayer. I make progress continually, because I'm led and guided always by your Spirit who unveils the realities of the Kingdom to my spirit, as I spend time with Him in fellowship, in Jesus' Name. Amen.

|| 1 Corinthians 14:15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. ||
