John 4: 24 -26 “God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship him in the Spirit and truth. The woman said, “I know that Messiah” is coming . When he comes, he will explain everything to us”. Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you- I am he.”
Reading, Olive – We have access by one spirit unto the Father, oh my Father. The Spirit helps our infirmities for we know not what we should pray for as we ought. The spirit makes intercessions for us with groans that cannot be uttered. He that searches the heart knows what is the mind of the spirit because he makes intercessions for the saints according to the will of God. This is the confidence we have in him that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. When he the spirit of truth is come he will guide you into all truths. Praying always that all prayer and supplication in the spirit and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication.
- Der heavenly father, you have reminded us that we need to worship you in spirit and in truth and that we need your holy spirit to help our infirmities because we do not know what to pray for as we ought to.
