... what is meant by the concept 'praying in the Holy Spirit?'
Praying in the Holy Spirit is another act of total surrendering. It's a point where you give up all knowledge and understanding to be led by the Holy Spirit. This experience has a way of boosting our Christian faith
I understand that praying in the spirit, is under his direction, is to submit the thoughts to the will of the intercessor who says the bible which intercedes for us with unspeakable groans. The holy spirit is in us and when we invite him into our life he will guide us to all truth, our thoughts, mind will be aligned to him. Sometimes we can confuse the glory of God with the Holy Spirit and they are totally different things.
1 Corinthians 14:15
So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding.
From the above scripture passage concerning praying in the spirit and praying with understanding.
Praying with understanding? Here your your intellect (soul) is at work praying according to the information at your disposal in the realm of understanding. (soul)
Praying in the Spirit? Here the Spirit gives you mind an enlightenment to pray, sometime beyond the realm of the intellect. The flow in prayer is beyond the human capacity.
The penticstals say it is speaking in tongues.
building up your self in the most holy place. The greatest experience any believer can have is praying in the holyghost. when we pray in tongues, we give the holy spirit the right of way to teach us how to pray
All great answers above. I wish to add that praying in the Holy Spirit is to allow the perfecter of our understanding " The Holy Spirit" to properly present our requests to God in the most acceptable way.
