Prayer for the Holy Spirit

Dear God,

We come before You today to ask for the presence and guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We believe that the Holy Spirit is a gift from You, God, given to us through Jesus. The Holy Spirit serves as our counselor, guiding us in truth and offering us comfort in times of need.

We ask that the Holy Spirit would fill us with Your love and give us the strength to follow You. Help us to be more like Jesus, and to live according to Your will.

We pray for the power of the Holy Spirit to transform us and to use us for Your purposes. We pray for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, and the ability to speak in tongues.

We pray for the Holy Spirit to work in the lives of our family, friends, and loved ones, and to bring them closer to You.

We pray for the Holy Spirit to be present in our churches and in the world, bringing people to a saving knowledge of Jesus.

We pray all of this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
