I don't believe it is a coincidence that God has led our studies in the past week and this, to focus on the Holy Spirit, and the bird that symbolizes His presence.
I would like to encourage you to read these verses about the Holy Spirit: His work, His identity, and His caring for us.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (John 14:26)
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. (Romans 8:26)
for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say. (Luke 12:12)
What an awesome gift Jesus gave to us, when He asked the Father for the Spirit to be with us and in us. He will guide us, teach us, and comfort us.
I would like to ask everyone to pray today, and share your prayer requests with all of us, so that we may pray alongside you. Several of our faithful readers have been experiencing health problems, and I know that the cares of this world can overwhelm us, too. Let us bear your burdens along with you.
Please let us know, too, if a prayer has been answered -- we can all praise God together!
