Prayer to Receive The Infilling of the Holy Spirit

 

My Heavenly Father, I am Your child, for I believe in my heart that Jesus has been raised from the dead, and I have confessed Him as my Lord.

Jesus said, “How much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him.”  I ask You now in the name of Jesus to fill me with the Holy Spirit.  I step into the fullness and power that I desire in the name of Jesus.  I confess that I am a Spirit-filled Christian.  As I yield my vocal organs, I expect to speak in tongues, for the Spirit gives me utterance in the name of Jesus.  Praise the Lord!  Amen
