Jude 1:20 says “But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit” Did you know that your spirit is a lot like a tank on a car? If you neglect to put fuel in it, the car will not run. Why? Because the car is made to work with the help of fuel ,without it, the car is absolutely useless.
The same holds true about your spirit,God designed each and everyone of us to operate by our spirits,which is like the gas tank and the Holy spirit is like the fuel. When you pray in the Holy spirit you are filling your spirit with the fuel it needs to operate in this life.
God never intended for you to go through this life without direction or even the strength to make this journey,that is the ministry of the Holy Spirit ; to take you and lead you with the strength from The Father above. John 14: 15-17 says “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.”
So as you can see ,God our father is wonderful and loving to us his children ,and He never made us to operate alone; apart from him. He gave us the Holy Spirit to be our helper through this life. So we never have to go another day being empty and wondering if we will make it . Just take a little time each day praying in the spirit and you will see that your tank will never run dry.
