Praying in the Holy Spirit
- Dr.Paul Dhinakaran
Praying in the Holy Spirit, reaching the throne of God, and getting answers from God establishes the kingdom of God on earth in the life of one who prays as well as on earth. God wants you to live in His Kingdom here and now.
When a satellite is connected to a rocket and fired, it zips through the sky releasing flames of fire, defying earth’s gravitation. Without the rocket, a satellite can never pass through earth’s gravitational force. Otherwise, the gravitation force will pull the satellite down. In the same way, there are forces in this world which pull us down all the time. For example, thoughts like - I can’t do anything, I always fail, I will fall sick, I have no future.
God is fitting a rocket to your life today. That rocket is the Holy Spirit. He will help you to walk and talk with God and will enable you to be more than a conqueror, breaking the barriers of the devil and the flesh. In essence, the Holy Spirit prays the mind of God and prays the plan of God through your lips. Remember, Jesus said, “Ask anything in My name” (John14:14).
What does the Holy Spirit pray through us?
John 16:8-11 says, “The Holy Spirit speaks about sin, about righteousness and about the judgment that is coming...”
The Holy Spirit prays through you to make you perfect. When a young man who wanted to be perfect asked Jesus, “What must I to do to enter into eternal life,” Jesus said to him, “Go and sell all your possessions and give it to the poor. And you will have treasures in heaven. Then come and follow Me” (Matthew 19:20-21). Yes, you don’t have to carry the treasures of this world; it will weigh you down like a gravitational force and slow you down from following Jesus.
If you look at Peter, in Matthew 19:27,29, he said to Jesus, “Lord, we have left everything and have followed you. What will we get?” Jesus said, “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life.”
Soon after we were married, Evangeline lost her beloved mother, her brother and her father, all in a short span of time, plunging her into deep sorrow. One day when she saw me, my father and my mother praying in the Holy Spirit and rejoicing in the Holy Spirit, she cried, “Lord, I have lost all my loved ones; I have no one in my own family on whom I could put my dependence now. I now confess that you are the only one who can carry me through. I need you and so fill me with your Holy Spirit.” One fine morning, when my wife and I were praying, the
Lord Jesus appeared to her and filled her with His Holy Spirit and we both were speaking in new tongues. She was lost in His presence and she was filled with joy. That was the last day of her sorrow. Though she lost everyone in her life, from that day, she started to gain back in hundred times. Today when she prays, the presence of Jesus fills the people and they receive the Holy Spirit. She was instrumental in leading our children Sam and Sharon to receive the Holy Spirit at ages 12 and 10 respectively, and Sweety is greatly touched by God, and our family life is full of joy. We started traveling everywhere together; the power of God united us and we minister together and make our children become godlier. This is how godly generations come into being. (Mal. 2:14,15). When the Holy Spirit comes, He turns the hearts of the children to the parents and the hearts of the parents to children (Mal. 4:6) causing perfect relationship in families.
When my father went to be with the Lord on February 20, 2008, great fear gripped my heart and I wondered who can be a father to these millions of people to whom my father was a ‘spiritual father’, because one million people came to pay their last respects to his body, and everybody cried, ‘Oh father, father’. For 23 days I could not sleep. I cried night and day saying “I know Lord, the ministry will continue, I know you have given me your word, I know your grace is upon me, I know you are doing miracles when I pray and I know it’s not Paul Dhinakaran, it’s You Jesus through the Holy Spirit. I Paul Dhinakaran, am only mud and clay. It is Jesus who does the miracles. I know Lord, your grace is upon me, but then Lord, I have to carry the millions of people that they should not back-slide and I need your word for these people. I must receive from you what you want to speak to them and only then can I deliver it to them. How can I do this?”
On March 14, 2008, the 23rd day, I had a divine visitation. The Holy Spirit came upon me and the Lord spoke to me for nearly two hours about the things that would happen. He said: “Now a new era is the beginning; this is the era to prepare the world for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.I am coming soon and so I am going to pour my Spirit upon all flesh (Acts 2:17).”
The Lord said, “It’s no longer one D.G.S. Dhinakaran, one prophet, one apostle for the preparation of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. I will pour my Spirit upon all flesh,” even children will begin to prophesy. Those who humble themselves as little children (Luke 12:32; John 21:5; Matthew 18:4-5) they shall prophesy. You may be eighty years old but if you humble yourself before the Lord as a little child, you will prophesy.
No Worry, No Pride
He makes us as little children and helps to trust in Jesus (1 Tim. 6:17). Hence, there is no room for worry or pride. God hates pride and worry. When you pray in the Holy Spirit, you will become as a little child trusting God and God’s power will operate through you.
If you have gone through much sorrow, pain or loss or criticism and humiliation, you can be assured that God is working on you to prepare you to do great exploits for Him! It is the first step – to make you like a little child. With the tongues He gives you, He will make you prophesy. As you prophesy, you will have hundred times of whatever you have lost. God will crush Satan under your feet (Romans 16:20; Psa. 44:5).
The Lord told me, “My son, tell the world about my Holy Spirit. I will fill everyone with my Holy Spirit; they will prophesy my will for themselves, for their family and for the nation. As they prophesy my will and pray for its fulfillment, my will shall come into the family, the nation and their lives and my kingdom will come on the earth and the devil’s kingdom will be crushed (Daniel 2:35). Today because my people are not proclaiming my will and praying my will the devil is getting his will (John 10:10) into this world. Yes, that’s why you see terrorism, hatred, poverty, and drought.
Teach people to pray; I will make them prophesy my plan. Go, and preach the gospel; go and conduct prophetic conferences everywhere and build Karunya to become a research institution. Build the Prayer Tower in New Delhi next to the seat of power. Then build the Israel Prayer Tower to pray and prophesy for the nations of the world. Establish Prayer Towers across the nation to enable prayer intercessors to go from each country to Israel to pray for My will for their nation. “
When you pray in the Holy Spirit, you will become as a little child trusting God and God’s power will operate through you.
Therefore, my wife and I have gone everywhere to preach the gospel. It’s a joy to see people coming to the Lord, Prayer Tow-ers rising up - the Delhi Prayer Tower and the Israel Prayer Tower. The Prime Minister opened his door for us to bring God’s plan for the nation. Prayer Towers in the nations are opening up. When God gave me this vision, Jesus Calls, and Karunya was in debt. I was appalled and I asked the Lord, how I could undertake these huge projects?But God said, “Obey me, and I will fulfill my will.” That’s how the power of the Holy Spirit exhibits. Yes, trust the Lord to take care of your family and you go and do what He commands you. By the grace of God, at the time of establishing Delhi Prayer Tower and Israel Prayer Tower, God made Jesus Calls and Karunya become totally debt-free.
Today, if you ask Lord to fill you with His Holy Spirit, He will bestow His wisdom on you; whatever you do will prosper and He will heal you (Physical, financial and emotional).
Looking back over the last nine years since the revelation, I can testify that God has blessed our Ministry. Our Prayer Towers have increased from 15 to 110 without any human effort. God did it! He has blessed our family, relationships in the family and blessed us with His peace and health (3 John 2). It’s the same with our staff and prayer intercessors. God wants to build your families too. Come to Him as a family husband, wife and children (2 Chronicles 20:13). The greatest words of prophecies have come to us during our family prayers.
Finally, ask God for the Holy Spirit. It’s yours for the asking! Leave your pride and worry behind, and obey and trust God, and God will bless millions to hear His voice through you.
Today, by the grace of God, hundreds of thousands of people are blessed through the Ministry because of the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus, the sacrifice of the martyrs who have shed their blood as well as the prayers of the saints who would not have seen the answers to their prayers during their lifetime. But God needs somebody to reap the harvest. Will you be that person? People of our nation are going to be blessed and experience the light of the gospel. Who is the reaper who is going to bring them into the Light of Christ? It is you. Would you say, “Lord, I believe that it’s me
