PRAY WITH THE SPIRIT
1 CORINTHIANS 14:14-16

I praise Jesus Christ
For that wonderful day,
That day that His Spirit
Taught me to pray;
To pray in the spirit
By God's Scripture I've won
Believed in the truth
I can pray in a tongue.

Released by God's Spirit
From my limitations
I pray with the spirit
Make my supplications.
I pray for the saints
As the Scripture commissions
I pray with the spirit
Make my petitions.

I will pray with the spirit
I will pray with the mind;
Because I love Jesus
This treasure I find.
To pray with the spirit
Is what Paul taught to men
This came by Christ Jesus
So I say, AMEN.
