Break out the church prayer request sheet and pray for the people who need him.

Make a habit of this and you'll notice the Lord giving you faith for some names and then you can thank him because he's working in their life.

Practical experience with the Holy Spirit is ministry and it's important because it teaches you to hear his voice.

After I received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, God would give me names to pray for. I would write them down every day in diaries. At first, I had pages and pages. While I was in church, I would hear more names and write them on every blank page in the back of my Bible. That was decades ago. I want that again. If you don't listen closely, you'll miss your instructions. The Holy Spirit will find someone else who will listen.

That is just what I got through doing. Christian music yes, kneeling yes, raised my hands to heaven yes, Gestures oh my yes, and Prophesying yes. Have a good day yes.

Shut the door to the world, turn up the christian music and lift your hands toward heaven and start praising the Lord, start rejoicing in the Lord, thanking Him for all things...Have other christians join you too.. mary4964

AH, unbelievers, I know that you are here. You are not so smart, God is smarter. You cannot see Him, you cannot hear Him, I can. YOU cannot feel Him, I can.

Stir in this passage is from the Greek meaning to rekindle.
It's like stirring coals in a fire to get the wood burning again.
Each Christian has a gift of ministry from God to be used in service to Him.
When leaders lay hands it is to confirm that they are in agreement that the person does actually possess that certain gift. It is an act of encouragement.
This is not something we do to "get" the Holy Spirit "going" in our life.
---Elder on 2/21/07

A kiss on the lips is out of fashion, but there's nothing like a big hug to stir up the spirit with the laying on of hands. Whatever you do, do it with conviction in all holiness.

We must crucify our flesh and have no desire for worldly things. Ensure all our sins are under the blood. Hunger for more of Jesus. Read the word every day as we only want to dwell in the truth. Spend at least one hour in prayer. I did that for more than one year, and suddenly and overnight doors from over 10 countries were open for me to share the gospel and pray for the sick. I begin to feel more on people's needs and pains. I only want to glorify Jesus.

Fasting and prayer.

First of all it is 2 Tim 1:6. Meaning that all the gifts that God freely gives, we all have them in us, we just need to desire to use these gifts, and they will get stirred up and get the Holy Ghost moving.

Bruce is second Timothy 1:6,"Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands."
---Mima on 1/22/07

1 Tim.1:6 says to stir up the gifts by the laying on of hands. In our church we frequenttly have laying on of hands for these, and other purposes. It is a wonderful way to get stirred up.

It sounds familiar but I cannot find the verse. That is why I am asking you for the specific reference so I can look it up.
---Bruce5656 on 1/22/07

One begins with praise and worship of God Almighty and continues in prayer. God inhabits the praise of His people,praise draws us nearer to God in preparation for prayer. Jude 1:20 But ye,beloved,building yourselves on your most holy faith,praying in the Holy Ghost. Pray also in tongues for that is praying in the Holy Ghost for He is praying through you and in private speaking only for God to understand; 1Corinthians 14:2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men,but unto God:.
---Darlene_1 on 1/22/07

Bruce-- my reference is to stirring up the Holy Spirit within a individual. Apparently we can from what Paul says to Timothy. So my question is how we go about stirring up the Holy Spirit witness with us?
