1). What is prayer?
The most basic definition of prayer is “talking to God.” Prayer is not meditation or passive reflection; it is direct address to God. It is the communication of the human soul with the Lord who created the soul. Prayer is the primary way for the believer in Jesus Christ to communicate his emotions and desires with God and to fellowship with God.
2). What position should we pray?
It’s not the position that’s important, but the heart of the person praying. That is why Jesus taught the disciples how to pray, but so much as what position to pray in; God is concern with our hearts! If you are sick and can’t get out of bed to get on your knees, than what? It’s the heart He want to communicate with, amen.
3). Describe the Greek word translated “pray in.”
The Greek word translated “pray in” can have several different meanings. It can mean “by means of,” “with the help of,” “in the sphere of,” and “in connection to.” Praying in the Spirit does not refer to the words we are saying. Rather, it refers to how we are praying.

Praying in the Spirit is praying according to the Spirit’s leading. It is praying for things the Spirit leads us to pray for.

Further, no one else can understand what is being said, unless there is an interpreter (1 Corinthians 14:27-28). As said earlier, praying in the Spirit is praying according to what the Spirit wants to pray, or as lead by the Holy Spirit. I know when the Spirit starts to pray, because it’s all new and fresh to me too. I benefit from it too! It’s awesome!
