Holy Spirit guides us – Daily prayer for June 25. The Holy Spirit, when we have it, it guides us and leads us the right way we need to take to get the hidden treasures. We must have the Holy Spirit for us to be able to get him to guide us.
Bible Verse for Today
“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” (John 16:13)
At first, through the Holy Spirit we get a vision from God and to follow it, we’ll still need the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives the power to face any challenges that may come our way. Acts 1:8a “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you.” While doing what has told us to do, the enemy will always rise to shift our focus from the goal and that’s why we need power through the Holy Spirit to stop them. When Potiphar’s wife called Joseph to sleep with her, he could have easily yielded to that which Potiphar’s wife has said but the Spirit in him would not allow him, He gave him the power to say no.
The Holy Spirit is the spirit of God, nothing is hidden away from him – when we accept Jesus Christ, and we accept the Holy Spirit and our eyes would be opened to some truths that will direct our steps in discovering treasures. The Holy Spirit will tell us the treasure we need at a time and how to get it. It also tells us what to do to get them – not only these but also guide us on how to use the treasures for good. If there is anything we Christians should be praying earnestly for these days, it should be for the guide of the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit Guides Us Prayer for Today
Lord, I need the Holy Spirit in my life, the spirit of truth. I believe that the Holy Spirit which is your spirit can help me and guide to discover the treasures. I plead for the Holy Spirit today and I receive it today. Amen.

Who is the Holy Spirit? And what role does he play in the Christian life? In John 15, Jesus tells his disciples about the persecution they will encounter by following him. “If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.” (John 15:20) As he went on about what life would be like after he eventually left to be with the Father, they naturally grew sorrowful (John 16:6). They didn’t know the wonder that God had planned next. Jesus comforts them in John 16:7, “I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you.” This “Helper” is the Holy Spirit.
Alistair Begg wrote, “Five Truths About the Holy Spirit,” on Ligonier.org. He explains the meaning of the word “Helper,” which is translated from the Greek word, parakletos. “It has a legal dimension; it refers to one who would be an advocate,” Begg said. “In its wider context, it speaks of comfort, of protection, of counsel, and of guidance.”
In her Crosswalk.com article, “Who the Holy Spirit Really Is (and Why It Matters to You),” Rachel Dawson wrote three things from Begg’s article that we should remember about the identity and importance of the Holy Spirit:

“This is the mystery of Pentecost: The Holy Spirit illuminates the human spirit and, by revealing Christ Crucified and Risen, indicates the way to become more like him, that is, to be ‘the image and instrument of the love which flows from Christ.’” (Pope Benedict XVI, June 4, 2006)
Dear Father, in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ, I ask you to stir up within me the fullness of Your Holy Spirit. Help me to grow in my relationship with the Third Person of Your Holy Trinity and to live in His power and use His gifts.
Lord Jesus, You promised, “The Counselor, 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). Help me to remember that I don’t know everything, and that this is okay, because the Holy Spirit understands it all. Fill me with the Holy Spirit and His understanding of everything that is happening in my life.
O Holy Spirit, Jesus asked the Father to give me the Spirit of Truth (John 14:17). Help me to recognize You in the scriptures. Open my mind to understand Your truths, and open my heart to accept Your truths in faith even before I gain right understanding.
O Holy Spirit, Jesus said, “The one who receives the seed that falls on good soil hears the word and understands it. He produces an abundant crop” (Matt. 13:23). Be the gardener of my life. Nourish the seeds of heaven that You have already placed within me and make it grow so that Your love, Your ways, and Your kingdom will always grow within me and produce much good fruit for others.
O Holy Spirit, Jesus said, “Do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you what you should say” (Luke 12:11-12). Help me to trust in You always. Help me to remember that with You, nothing is impossible, and that You work everything according to what is good and right and timely, even if it doesn’t seem so to me.
O Holy Spirit, Jesus said, “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and everything else you need will be given to you as well” (Matt. 6:33). Help me to let go of all my earthly attachments. First help me to recognize what I am attached to that is not of You, and then hold my hand as I walk away from the things of the world. Give me the determination and the strength to let go so that I have no other gods before me. I want only You.
O Holy Spirit, You are the Comforter. Help me to let go of the losses in my life. Heal my heart. And help me to face my sinfulness and to feel genuine sorrow for the damage ~ both intentional and unintentional ~ that I have inflicted on others and in so doing have inflicted on Jesus. Comfort me as I mourn my need for forgiveness, and give me Your spirit of rejoicing over this new growth in me.
O Holy Spirit, Jesus freely chose to suffer and die for me because of His tremendous love for me. I have pains in my life ~ hurts, wounds, sufferings, trials, difficulties ~ and I want to run from them. Strengthen me to follow in Jesus’ footsteps so that I can walk my road to Calvary without fearing evil, and lead me into my new life of victory and resurrection.
O Holy Spirit, Jesus said that He would not leave us orphans, but would send You to us (John 14:18). How often I have wept or complained because it seemed like You were not with me in my sorrows and sufferings! Help me to recognize Your presence in ALL situations. Help me to turn to You and find You, for You never leave me nor abandon me. You care even more about me and my problems than I do. You are working a plan for my benefit, to make good come from everything that happens to me. Help me to discover Your presence in every moment of my life.
O Holy Spirit, by the cross of Jesus we are healed! By His resurrection we live in the new life of total, unconditional love. Help me to share that healing love with all those around me. Jesus commanded, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” Help me to declare with power the Good News of Jesus Christ. Send me to where You can use my gifts and talents to make a difference.
O Holy Spirit, You gave Yourself to the Virgin Mary and she said “yes” to becoming the mother of the Messiah. Help me to say “yes!” to whatever it is You are calling me to do. I want to serve the Father and make Jesus’ love more evident in the world around me.
O Holy Spirit, I have my own expectations about what I should and should not do. I now surrender to You my ideas, my limitations, my preferences, and my goals. Fill me, Holy Spirit, with all Your supernatural gifts! Empower me to accept and grow in the supernatural life as much as the early disciples did. I want to be useful to You. I want to go where You lead me. Holy Spirit, send me forth gifted and empowered to make a difference spreading the Good News of God’s forgiving love.
Come, Holy Spirit; renew me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

A Testimony from a reader of the Good News daily Good News Reflections:
Thanks for the beautiful reflection as well as for the link to the Prayers to the Holy Spirit. I saw this link about a year ago, printed it and use it very often during my prayers.
You mentioned about the Baptism of the Holy Spirit being a necessity in one’s spiritual life. Let me share a little on this subject. My wife and I were in quite a bad spiritual state (practically anti-God) when we were told that we could not have a child. The Lord in his mercy drew us to a prayer meeting where there were testimonies by people from various faiths including some priests and leaders from the local Charismatic Renewal. We listened in particular to two gentlemen, a father and son.
Their testimony was so powerful and it touched us so much that I went forward to be prayed over when the call was given and was prayed over by the older gentleman mentioned earlier. It was such a dramatic experience that it gives me shivers even when I think of it today, 30 years later. I was in tears, shaking and shivering, and I received the gift of tongues on the spot. My wife saw my experience, and she too went up and had a similar experience.
Life was completely different after that. We were able to tell the Lord that even if he wanted us to be childless, we would be happy, as his will was more important that our want. It is only after this acceptance that the Lord gifted us with a son ten years into our marriage.
The idea of this sharing is to inform those who have not had the privilege of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to go ahead and attend a “Life in the Spirit Seminar” and I can guarantee you that it will be an experience that will overhaul your life.

I have followed the suggestions of others on this website and have found strength and fortitude for prayers to the Holy Spirit. “Holy Spirit, since I have invited you into my heart every day, I have felt a definite presence and strength flow through my soul. My life has gained new meaning. I thank you for giving me the strength and knowledge to face the trials and tribulations that occur everyday running my business. Holy Spirit, please guide me and help me to find the answers to keep 120 people gainfully employed. Help me to carry on Gods’ will and guide me through the challenges that people whom have selfish agendas are placing in front of us. As always help me and teach me to forgive all of those people and continue the growth of this company in God’s will. I promise to keep you in my heart and never separate from you. May other’s saying this prayer receive the same gift of peace from you that I have now received on a daily basis.
