The Holy Spirit helps to guide us and leads us towards living a more Christ filled life. Walking with Christ requires being in a state of constant fellowship. These prayers for the Holy Spirit power will help you to reach out for the Lord’s guidance and strength.

Prayer #1

Dear Father, in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ, I ask you to stir up within me the fullness of Your Holy Spirit. Help me to grow in my relationship with the Third Person of Your Holy Trinity and to live in His power and use His gifts.

Prayer #2

O Holy Spirit, I have my own expectations about what I should and should not do. I now surrender to You my ideas, my limitations, my preferences, and my goals. Fill me, Holy Spirit, with all Your supernatural gifts! Empower me to accept and grow in the supernatural life as much as the early disciples did. I want to be useful to You. I want to go where You lead me. Holy Spirit, send me forth gifted and empowered to make a difference spreading the Good News of God’s forgiving love.

Prayer #3

Dear heavenly Father, I know that I’ve been born of the Spirit, sealed by the Spirit and am indwelt by the Holy Spirit. That why asking you for a fresh work of the Spirit in my life is an easy thing to do. You are quintessential generosity—the most bighearted and openhanded Father imaginable. You won’t give us snakes and scorpions, when we ask; but grace and more grace, and still more grace! Hallelujah, many times over!

By the grave-robbing, kingdom-advancing, Christ-exalting power of the Holy Spirit, restore to me the joy of your incomparable salvation; renew my love for the beauty and freedom of holiness; and intensity my awareness and excitement about the occupied throne of heaven. Amen I pray, in Jesus exalted and awesome name!

Prayer #4

Father God, my delight is to do Your will and I pray that I may learn to walk by means of the spirit, more and more with every passing day. Your word assures us that if we walk in the spirit, we will not fulfil the lust of the flesh, and will be walking according to the will of the Father and living in prefect submission to the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Keep me I pray looking to Jesus, walking in spirit and truth and trusting You with my whole heart. I pray that in all things I would seek Your face, listen to Your gentle promptings and respond to Your still small voice of conscience. Help me to live a godly life, where I esteem others as better than myself.

Keep me from engaging in any form of conflict, but rather may I exhibit an attitude of grace and forbearance, that only comes from You.

Teach me day by day to walk in the spirit, to live in the spirit and to pray in spirit and truth – and use me dear Lord, as You will in the furtherance of Your kingdom – to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray,


Prayer #5

Holy Spirit,

You are God. I praise you because you are holy, and I thank you for dwelling in my heart. Thank you for working in my life. You guided me into salvation, renewed my dead spirit, and you opened my eyes to the Truth. Thank you.

Help me to walk in you, the Spirit of God. Grow good fruit in my life. You are the one who produces these in me: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. I cannot live out these things on my own; I need you.


Prayer #6

Heavenly Father, we thank You that by Your Spirit You caused all Holy Scriptures to be written for our learning.

Thank You that Your Word is able to furnish us with all the wisdom we need, which has led us to saving faith in Christ.. and reconciliation with God.. Thank You also, that in the power of Your holy Spirit You have promised to guide us into all truth; teach us all that we need to know and train us we pray to live godly in Christ Jesus.

Enable us to apply Your word in our hearts – by faith, so that by Your Spirit we may carry out the good work that You have prepared for us to do – in Your power and to Your glory. Help me to treasure Your Word in my heart and to meditate upon it day and night, knowing that all Scripture is inspired by Your Spirit and is profitable for reproof and correction – and for training in righteousness.

I pray that the word of Christ may dwell in me richly, and that in the power of Your Spirit You would search deeply into the inner recesses of my heart and mind to discover any area that is displeasing to You – and to enable me to correct it… to Your praise and glory, Amen.

Heavenly Father, how I thank You that by faith in the Lord Jesus, Your Holy Spirit has made me alive in Him and placed me into the family of God and the Body of Christ.

Thank You that He has set His seal of ownership upon me and taken up residence within my heart.. so as to empower me in my spiritual walk, as He gradually transforms me in to the lovely likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. I pray that the Holy Spirit would lead and guide me in all things, and that I would learn to listen to the gentle promptings of His voice.. as I read Your Word or commune with You in prayer. Give me grace to recognise His still small voice as I search though the scriptures each day and the wisdom to discern Your spiritual nudges, when godly Christians are prompted to offer direction and give me advice.

May I maintain an open heart and develop a teachable spirit – and I pray that I may walk in Your ways and live a life that is well pleasing to You. and glorify my Father in heaven, I ask this in Jesus name, Amen
