As Christians we should not ask God to give us the Holy Spirit. God has already sent the Holy Spirit to us. The Holy Spirit lives in us now. What we should ask God, is that we listen more to
the Holy Spirit and not put our "deaf ear" to the Spirit's voice.
As humans, we are often a little disobedient,
and this is in our selfish nature. But God is greater than our selfish nature and know that we
are like small children that sometimes don't do what "daddy" tells us to do. So if we say: Yes, Lord, I accept the Holy Spirit as my companion and helper, then God will take away our selfish nature and let the Spirit guide us. All we need to do is give the Lord our yes, and mean it with a pure heart. And wonderful things begin to happen in our life, Amen. God bless you and keep you safe.
