Daily Prayer & Devotion


December 8, 2019

Dear Holy Father,

Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to be
my helper.

You know how much I need Your strength in my times of weakness.

I am so encouraged by what Paul wrote of his encounter with Jesus...

And He said to me,
“My grace is sufficient for you,

for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore most gladly

I will rather boast in my infirmities,

that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9

You know how much I need Your help in every area of my life,

I need Your help to face my daily challenges.

I need Your help to overcome temptations, to stand strong and to serve You.

I need Your help to increase my faith, to understand Your Word, to solve many problems, and to live for You daily.

Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit, The Helper, to guide me, to give me strength for living, and to comfort me in my times of sorrow.

Your Holy Spirit truly is my Helper.

In Jesus' name I pray,



Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God

The Holy Spirit: The Helper

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit,

whom the Father will send in My name,

He will teach you all things,

and bring to your remembrance

all things that I said to you.

John 14:26

The Holy Spirit is the Helper who was sent by Jesus for your assistance. Because Jesus couldn’t remain in His physical body on Earth, He sent the Holy Spirit to indwell you. He can help you overcome sin and live a godly life. He can help you understand Scripture and give you power to live by its principles (John 14:26). He can help you intercede to the Father so that your prayers will be answered (Romans 8:26-27). He can guide your daily life and help you walk in righteous paths (Galatians 5:16). If you need help in your Christian life, call on the Helper today.

Holy Spirit, I need You this day. I am weak; strengthen my will to follow You. I am limited; help me live above my weaknesses. I need Your help in every area of my life.

The Holy Spirit is your Helper. Even though the Holy Spirit has many titles, “Helper” was Jesus’ favorite name for Him, because it reflects what He does for us. The Holy Spirit helps people become Christians; then He helps them live godly lives. He helps them in Christian service. No matter what your need, call on the Holy Spirit today. He will help you.

Holy Spirit, I bow humbly, asking You for help. I need Your power to overcome temptation. I need Your light to understand Scriptures. I need Your guidance to walk the straight and narrow path. I need Your wisdom to solve my problems. I need Your presence to enrich my life and give me new purpose to live today.   Amen.
