“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.” Romans 8:26 NLT

Jesus spoke of children often in his parables, and one of the things He spoke of was the faith of children (Matthew 18:24), and how powerful that is before God.

What then is special about the children’s faith? It is the lack of limitations that exists in their imagination, the certainty that what they ask will be availed when they ask, and the ability to not count their will as part of the equation once they have asked.

For example, when a child gets in trouble with one of their schoolmates, they can confidently say they will tell their mom/ dad while being deeply convinced that they will do something about it. As adults, we shouldn’t approach God any different from this child, but instead, we lose this kind of confidence because we assume such imaginations are beneath us.

In our wise judgement, we lose the simplicity that should be the guiding light of our faith in a God that loves like a Father. In our theme scripture, Paul shares an invaluable revelation concerning one of the many things we have access to by the Holy Spirit, prayer that is undefiled because it is prayed in line with God’s will but also with understanding of His power (1 Corinthians 2:10).

If you desire to pray with results, seek for the will of God in scripture and take your mind through an exercise to imagine the circumstances you wish to see changed or aligned to purpose, then define them accordingly. After this begin to thank God that it is done, and that don’t transgress by rehearsing tragedy of all the reasons why it should not happen. Stand and see the salvation of the Lord (Exodus 14:13).

Prayer: Father I thank you for this word. I pray in the spirit but also with understanding because you are Lord over my mind among all other things. I exercise my self to carry the faith of a child yet with the mind of Christ that I may glorify you in all petitions. Help me with strength of might that this conviction remains immovable, in Jesus name. Amen!
