John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus, bringing people to a place of repentance to make ready a people for the coming of the Lord. John came in the spirit and power of Elijah.
Elijah was a man just like us but he prayed earnestly... Elijah performed many miracles.
Father God, help us to live by the power of Your Holy Spirit so that we can prepare the way for Your coming. Help us to pray earnestly for Your will to be done in the earth. Inoculate us with the vaccine of Your Holy Spirit that we may be protected from the evil schemes of the enemy. Let the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus make us free from the law of sin and death. Let the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwell in us to quicken our mortal bodies.
Teach us Your ways O God! Show us how to pray, to live and move filled with Your Spirit to a greater measure so we can prepare the way for You.
