Your Personal Prayer for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Before we pray, here are some instructions. Read through them and then pray through the prayer below.

  • Lay your hand on your heart or your forehead.
  • Ask the Father for the baptism of the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus.
  • Expect to speak in other tongues.
  • You receive by faith, but just like anything else, you need to put your faith into action. After praying for the baptism, open your mouth and allow the utterance that is stirring around on the inside to come forth. In other words, give voice to what is stirring inside you. The Holy Spirit will not force Himself upon you. You need to cooperate with Him. It's easy, but very powerful.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I am a believer in Jesus Christ, and I ask you in His name for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in tongues. I believe and receive from You.

In Jesus' name, amen.

Now open up your mouth, start moving your tongue and give voice to what is starting to stir in your heart. It won't be anything you recognize. But do not be afraid; just cooperate with the Holy Spirit. In time, you will start to learn the importance and the power in this type of prayer.

This prayer is taken from DARE to Believe, Chapter 7, "Power From on High," page 147.
