Our desires will always affect our prayer life, if our desires are not in order prayer will not be in order.
When it comes to prayer we don’t always know how to pray so the holy spirit helps us.
The holy spirit helps us with realigning our priorities and in so doing helps with prayer. He realigns our desire not just to stop bad habits but to pick up good habits.
The advent of the spirit has changed prayer forever praying in the Holy Ghost is a privilege of redemption. Acts 2:33 praying in the spirit is only possible because Jesus is glorified. When we pray in the spirit we bypass our unfruitful minds.
When we pray in the spirit we are always in the will of God.
