Contact us at pastoralan.org that's Pastor Alan.org or call 877-544-4860 that's 877-544-4860. More on that later in the program right now. Let's get started with today's teaching in the series praying with our here is Alan Wright there number of ways in which you can have spiritual prayer. There's a thing in which the Holy Spirit prays in the three new Paul says with groans that are too deep for words. There's a way in which the Holy Spirit connects up with you and and gives you revelation as you pray and then your praying things that are led therefore by God illumined mind as if coming if you can learn to hook up to what God is saying it has a prophetic kind of quality to it then because now you're praying when you didn't know how to pray. But God is praying through you for specific things and and specific ways and that's powerful praying in an unknown language.
The spiritual language what tongues is really is a spiritual language that that's one form of praying in the spirit and I know there's a lot of controversy about about tongues. There's something that's Easton and Abbott. This is nothing the Bible that you don't give evidence to that. It's a good captain is one, is one of the good gets some people confuse and think it's the only way that you can pray in the spirit that's a lot you know some people said you I want the gift of tongues. I haven't received it yet. Does that mean I can't bring the spirit. There are many ways you can hook up with God's spirit is just to say that what Paul says pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kind of request he same. Please don't let your prayer life. Just be fleshly.
Don't let it just be something you just conjure about your own mind something is just so foolish to the soulless prayer life is ineffective and at some point it's offensive. It meant I think a laptop with you where it gets is worse is where your prayer was somebody and and and you just there just so into their own agenda and it just starts coming out you know that's just the largest to help my precious wife to clean up the house better than she is. It's really been my wife not right, but I SS a Solis is a sulfur just to chat while we just be honest okay over the stent can meditate no account.
Please don't do well me and that's where you pray and you start telling testimony why you're praying you know that's not really it's like a prayer need and then you start pray Lord please bless Frankie and just let him know that one time in my life. I went through a similar thing not talk to me just talk to me but would use our prayer life to just simply express our emotions or simply express our agenda of our own thoughts is to say that is not a place for just simply bring you what's on your heart on your mind is bringing to God but is if you want to hook into real prayer. It's effective that it's a spiritual burnout at one of the best ways you can pray in the spirit is to take God's word that the Bible itself says of God's word says this in Timothy that all Scripture is God breathed, know the words all Scripture is filled with God's spirit. When God speaks now this is just metaphorically because God is spirit, and is not been in the flesh, like we do, but we speak.
Breath comes out of our mouth and words are formed in the beginning God said, let there be light in the spirit of God was hovering over the deep. Everything that God does as he speaks, it is infused fully with his own spirit. We don't understand about the power of words off. We understood about the power that words are filled with your breath or something of your spirit that comes out to where you understand the word breath and spirit are the same word in the Bible in both Old Testament new seven Hebrew and Greek there interchangeable and sometimes hard to tell how to be translated should be said breath should be spirit because it is is this analogy so similar so all of everything that God says is filled with the spirit so you if you want to start by just you got plenty right here you can pray and to pray as spiritual prayer because if you pray the Scripture what you're doing is you're hooking up to God's own heart you're hooking up your heart to God's own heart that's already been declared. He's already declared his word and is full of his spirit something is always now. I just want to point you therefore one of the greatest prayers it's ever been.
Pray in Luke chapter 1 had read it yet have okay you preach three sermons in a week and you can't remember after while you dislike. I Luke chapter 1 and verse 30 the angel Gabriel has, now he says, Luke one, verse 30. Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son in your to give him the name Jesus. He'll be great and will be called the son of the most high, the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, his kingdom will never in how this be Mary asked Angel since I'm a virgin. The angel answered the Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power the most high will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the son of God, even Elizabeth your relative going to have a child in her old age and she, who is said to be barren is in her six month for nothing is impossible with God. And then here's her prayer I'm the Lord's servant, Mary answered, may it be to me as you have said literally let it be unto me according to your word about what what is happening here is that Mary has encountered this vast infinite glorious presence and revelation of God through an angel that is appeared to her and announced to her that which she could have never imagined on her own to the Bible says that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond all that you would ask or imagine, this is one of the reasons get hooked up and spiritual.
Pray because in your own mind you will never dream something as good as what God has already laid up for you so all you ever relied on was what you could think up here. There never hook up completely with what God's purposes are you know that it's Nazarene peasant girl was not going around praying and just hoping that maybe she'd be the mother of the Messiah. Now she just minding her business in Nazareth collecting water with other young girls doing the daily things and here comes this angel and announces this glorious revelation. Well first thing that happened was that her mind had a conflict with this and that is the first thing that happens especially when you're just young and starting to learn to hear from God. Your mind conflicts with it it it it it doesn't make sense to your mind. How could this possibly be.
How can this possibly I'm not married. How can this be so.
God is patient and he answers her Solis question my mind doesn't understand is not just watch this is an interesting think about this the response that she gets she in her mind she sent my mind wants to make sense of this so that it was is okay. They was going happen is the most high God is good, overshadow you with me and then the Holy Spirit is going to come upon you will have in your lawn. Conceive a child in a supernatural way will what I and this child will be the son of God will thank you for clarifying that for me now all make sense to me had any more sense of what was going to happen after she heard all that all angel is done just that what you want to know some but I will tell you some kind, glorious miracle. I will rock your world right now. This is a revelation there's no way you could comprehend what is getting ready to happen to you, and there was something inside of Mary. Maybe this is why he chose her there was on this item.
This is okay enough with those kind of questions. She said I'm your servant Alan Wright will have more teaching moment.

I realize I'm in the presence of the living God, and there is only one thing for me to do that is to yield myself to you. I'm sure the person that learns to pray in the spirit. Learn to submit to God's presence, let it be. I could never in a million years dripped up something like that. You are above and beyond and greater than anything I can ever have an agent wouldn't have even suggested to put those words in your mouth God, but you have said them.
And since you said them.
And here I am taking let it be unto me according to your word. Let the whole scope of my life come into alignment with the promises that you have just made before me.
Let every bit of this revelation be applied personally into my life. I fully accepted, let it be according to your word.
I'm suggesting to you as you see how powerful it is to simply agree with God and connect up with his heart for what he already wants to do and then to participate with him in prayer by saying yes will let it be.
And that's the way God works in his world, so it will if God already wants to do it. You know what's my role in this thing is these these things. You can only understand by analogy in relationships when the first thing that happens when you really get to know God is a Holy Spirit parts starts calling out father through you.
God, because you start realizing you know he's not a spiritual force field that I just sometimes plug into what I needed. He's not a slot machine that I drop my tithe into and hope that I get some good.
He's not. He's not just some ordering principles that you can put into a list of 10 things to do or not do.
He's a person, and he's my father. And as my father. I really I relate to him so if you think of the way children relate to the father know the first thing say is children are amazing at how they can claim promises to their parents. You don't have to teach a child to say but you promised.
This just is just an and the reason that it is is because the child understands that he or she is power, less except for your promise, using it's like the only way I got no money. I can't drive a car key I got I got no influence here so you promise we will have ice cream and I moved moved by that simple earthly parent as I am with all my moments of lack of integrity and not matching up my words to my access to my word. I am moved by a little eight-year-old girl to say but you promised. Now how this thing works is very interesting because you think, why, why do we need to ask God to do something if it's already in his word are in his heart to do well things work like that. So the Abigail Art a girl.
She loves animals and we got a beagle and she's the main one that loves omit beagle and course my wife would claim that Abigail loves the beagle, but that my wife claim she takes care of the big but it's not altogether true.
There's just certain things that I don't do with the beagle. I don't put drops in years. But anyway certain lotions that have to be applied to Angel Todd I don't applied to certain places, but I'm help with the big Abigail of the beagle but was she what she wants. She wants something else that she can just really snuggle with you know, and so they came up sometime back that she discovered when I was little I had guinea pigs I resize in the plural is because one after another got slaughtered by the docks and that lived up the street and so I have fluffed one fluff to pop want to puff to and she she found out about this and so sees our same daddy can I have a guinea pig and I know Ann's answer to that is nowhere not getting another animal here that I have to take care of and clean his cake and so now Abigail likes may be more anything else, get her daddy time, and so on a Monday morning when I'm sleeping in and show you the comments snuggle. We have some snuggle time what she means when you come back over sit my bed. Let's look at some books together and just Snuggle up just you know have this long uninterrupted time with.
The main thing is you like to snuggle with over the past years is snuggle but she also has an ulterior motives. You've got a guinea pig book this you like to bring up we look at we have poured overnight guinea pig book. We have looked at the pictures of the different guinea pig.
So when I've got the memorizes what page the brown ones on and what the and and then I'll take arrives and I have a look over here care and maintenance, guinea pigs in general revisit. You have to totally care for and and she said please can have a guinea pig, please have a guinea pig like you know Abby, you don't know and you know mom didn't want guinea pig and and I just don't know about this and she said she got so all this is all for you know the better part of a year about guinea pig, but this is where the day where it all hit me where she she's an edge that you know how much work it and finally in her desperation she going she said daddy do you want me to get a guinea pig that was the perfect question because once you realize was that you know if you want me to get a guinea pig. I have seen how things operate around here you will be getting anything what she's saying is if I said what I want you to get in. She would not cease asking me for that guinea pig until the guinea pig came to live and our house because she knew no then she is going to get it, but asking for is part of the getting of the guinea pig coming easy. There are so many things parent is within your heart.
It is within your well toward your children are desire towards them when they do not appropriate, except for they ask for it. And there's something in there asking for when that connects up with something that's already in your good intentions towards them, it releases it in a way that would not have happened otherwise. I know one of the things of God called me to do my life right now is that is is he leaving as the occasion is right, and so forth that given priority. The first things first, but I know I was to go other plea places and share the gospel message of how God will shame. I know this season. My life is supposed to do that so but I've I've got a family I got a full-time job here it's all have say my time off to do that to be selective about it and to be careful. Make sure your forgot about. So there's a lady that that wrote me a while back and she's from My Pl. in Texas and she said she has of the counseling ministry at their church and what I conquered what I consider, well I sent you all might consider coming will convince you. I pages that I will be in Winston-Salem and cussing out talk to for a few minutes as it will show love to meet. So here's what I want to do is what already know what I want to do. I want to if I'm going to go share and since then I got up I want to share out of the experience the rich experience of God's healing presence in my life. I want to share those truth that I know that I know that I know and leave some lasting impartation there and what I really want to do Bill do it on a Friday night and do it all the sent Saturday morning so that I can get back on plan to be back your Saturday night literally wanted, so she comes in she says down and she says would like to do this event have you come on Friday night and into Saturday morning and then you could go back home and we want to do this about the note lasting impartation about same off so she's asked me, she said, would you consider to censure considered to do that if we find a ride.
I will do that now.
What I'm saying is that was already in my smile will that is already my desire to do that right, but I would not go to Texas except she was asking me to come to know what she is appropriating what is already my hearts desire, but the asking is part of it would do that with everything and everything in the Christian life is a partnership with God.
That's what the deal is you know I mean is I will if God already knows what what little we asking is already in his heart and his will, he just knew it. Just like saying well you know the Lord wants us, which I believe he does to be learning right now about spiritual prayer so that your your personal prayer life can go to a whole new level to the congregational prayer life.
You go to hold it up if he wants us to learn that his will for us right now to be learning about that Mike wanted he does do that.
I don't know you sit on, you go. Talk about a go preach about to go speak about and you might say what that person over there. Does God want them to be safe and and and if he does want and he just go over there disabled. I don't know you said you go witness to a person walking out there.
They're hungry for God wants and be fed cussing when you go feed him.

Our in.work so Alan where people who are looking for. Next action steps something we can do and take away from the message and are you saying read God's word more reducing pray more, or both.
What this is an invitation to is to let your prayer life become powerful by letting your expression of your desire be linked in with what God has already said so 01 of the best thing you can ever do to God is just talk to the way a child talked to to a father and that is essentially what you promised and you said this, and therefore I'm asking this is and so knowing God's word therefore becomes not only spiritually nursing, nourishing us as disciples, but it becomes the real fabric of our prayer life.
