The spirit is the lead heart chamber of our prayers. The Bible refers to the spirit as the lamp of God used to search our innermost beings (Proverbs 20:27). Prayer is the connection of our heart with God’s. In essence, it’s being online with the Creator. In order to humbly surrender our spirits to the Father, we must pray for wisdom.
Jesus surrendered His spirit to the Father. Each of the Gospel writers recorded Jesus praying alone daily with the Father and living online 24/7 with Him. Luke captured Jesus’ last prayer, “Jesus called out with a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit'” (Luke 23:46).
Follow Jesus’ model and become a person who PRAYS: Praise your heavenly Father for who He is. Renew your mind to be to be focused on His kingdom, rather than your own. Ask God for whatever you need to advance His kingdom. Yield all unsettled accounts to Him. Surrender to be Spirit-Led. You will experience His heavenly wisdom in your life.
