Romans 8:26-27 26Likewise the Spirit also HELPETH our INFIRMITIES: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh INTERCESSION for us with GROANINGS which cannot be uttered. 27And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

The first four are:

  1. The Spirit of Life: Creates or recreates God’s Divine Life in Us

  2. The Spirit of Truth: Brings us to a more PERFECT REVELATION of God.

  3. The Spirit of Adoption: Works patiently in us until we can be called sons of knowledge, MATURE SONS

  4. The Spirit of Holiness: Causes our relationship to grow into the REALIZATION and REVELATION of HIS HOLINESS

The first four reveal His work in creating the DIVINE LIFE of God in us.

The final three are:

  1. The Spirit of Grace: Governs the attitudes and actions of the believer who has learned to walk in DEPENDENCE on the Holy Spirit

  2. The Spirit of Supplication: Executes the office of prayer, governing the communication between our spirit and God.

  3. The Spirit of Glory: Forms the goodness of God in us; His honor, His reputation, His transfiguration, His manifest presence, He changes us from glory to glory.

The last three offices reveal His divine power as He governs our lives to fully develop HIS character in His BRIDE Church.

These three offices of the Holy Spirit reveal His power to govern our LIFE so He can fulfill all the purposes of God in us individually and in the Church.

Govern: To exercise continuous sovereign authority over, to control, direct, or strongly influence the actions and conduct of, to exert a determining or guiding influence in or over.


Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Daniel 9:3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:

Daniel 9:17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake.

Psalms 6:9 The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.

Psalms 55:1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.

Psalms 86:6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.

Psalms 143:1 Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Genesis 2:7 (AMP) Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a living being.


Man is a SPIRIT, who has a SOUL (mind, will and emotions), and lives in a BODY (physical flesh).


1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart . . .

Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the *belly.

Proverbs 20:27 (AMP) The spirit of man [that factor in human personality which proceeds immediately from God] is the lamp of the Lord, searching all his innermost parts.†

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;


Believing God

107So therefore that’s the reason, said, “The prayer of faith shall save the sick,” an individual’s prayer. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” Oh, if you only knew that, in your hand, Christ gave us the authority, with His Name, by being Christians, the most powerful weapon the world has ever known. Prayer, it even changes everything. It’ll change the mind of God. It did do it. After death was pronounced to a man, he prayed; God told the prophet, “Go back and tell him I heard him.” See there, prayer, hold on!

Do You Now Believe?

9Prayer is the key, that’s the answer. Prayer changes things. Prayer is the most powerful weapon that was ever put in the—the control of human beings. There’s no atomic bomb, or no hydrogen bomb as powerful as prayer. Prayer will change the mind of God. Did you know that? It did do it one time.

11So we believe that prayer is the most powerful weapon that was ever put in the care of a human being. You know, prayer one time changed the mind of God. Did you know that? It sure did.

Hezekiah was told by Isaiah the prophet, that he was going to die on that bed. And Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and wept bitterly, and asked the Lord for—for fifteen more years of life. And God sent the prophet right back, and said, “I’ve heard.” And he was spared for the time. See? When God had already announced his death. But He spared him, because that he prayed. So if prayer is that powerful, what can it do? My, we don’t realize how great it is.


Romans 8:26-27 26Likewise the Spirit also HELPETH our INFIRMITIES: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh INTERCESSION for us with GROANINGS which cannot be uttered. 27And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Romans 8:26-27 (AMP) 26So too the [Holy} Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf wit unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance. 27An He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God’s will. [Ps. 139:1-2]

1 Corinthians 14:13-15 13Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret. 14For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. 15What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

Jude 20-21 20But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Ephesians 5:18-20 18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

1 Corinthians 14:4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.

1 Corinthians 14:4 (AMP) He who speaks in a [strange] tongue edifies and improves himself, but he who prophesies interpreting the divine will and purpose and teaching with inspiration] edifies and improves the church and promotes growth [in Christian wisdom, piety, holiness, and happiness].

1 Corinthians 14:14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.

1 Corinthians 14:14 (AMP) For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit [by the Holy Spirit within me] prays, but my mind is unproductive [it bears no fruit and helps nobody].

1 Corinthians 14:18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:
