Oh Lord, I pray that people of all the world will come to know You. Just like the day of Pentecost, I pray that the fire of the Holy Spirit will reign down upon these people. Give them words to speak and a path to follow. In our own flesh we are weak, but in the Spirit we are strong. Every temptation can have a stronghold upon our lives and lead us into paths of darkness, which is hard to escape. So Lord, lead us out of temptation and build us up with Your armor, that we might start resisting the charms and temptations of the enemy, starting today. Your ways are higher and can lead us out of a life of sin. The guilt and shame that people are experiencing, because of the bondage they are in, can only be broken with Your presence in their lives. It is my prayer that people will find a way out of their broken life and come to You for their fullness of joy. Only then can they be brought to know You and have Your truth in their lives. It is the fire of the Holy Spirit that leads us to what is true and Your Words in the Bible confirm this truth. Thank You Lord for giving us a way out of the darkness of this world and for leading us in Your light. I want more of You and less of me. As I go forth, may what I say and do be less about myself and more about You. I want all the world to know You, Jesus, as their personal Savior. So give me the words to speak to them. Fill me up with the Holy Spirit and allow Your fire to go forth in my life. Break the strong holds that are holding people back from doing the same thing for your cause. Only You can give us ears to hear and eyes to see. I love You Lord. I trust in You, God. Amen.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
The fire of the Holy Spirit comes upon every follower of Christ, in order to lead them out of darkness and into the truth of God.
The day that Jesus came unto His disciples, the day of His resurrection, He ushered in the holy Spirit to them. However, it was then that others would also gain the same gift. Continue Reading
