Prayer gives you a greater desire and ability to disengage from the sources of corruptible influences or environments. It also develops, nurtures and strengthens a consciousness of God and His Kingdom. You gain a quicker and easier yieldedness to His will. Motives borne out of a right relationship with Jesus Christ is a life that desires to be pleasing in His sight. It is a life that desires to be taught how to become a spiritual partaker of His divine nature.
God also processes you for sanctification. Our sanctification came through the finished work of Jesus Christ, the shedding of His blood to redeem us from the curse of the law, adjusting and aligning our carnal nature to a spiritual nature that is in right standing with God. But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 1 Thessalonians 2:13.
The Holy Spirit processes you to be clothed, covered and crowned for citizenship in the kingdom of God. He processes you for purification. Purification or consecration is giving up self, taking up your cross so that you desire a changed disposition. Prayer helps facilitate a renewed disposition that is dependent and reliant on God. The renewed man has a faithful and obedient nature toward God. A renewed nature will outwardly manifest the inner workings of the Holy Spirit.
Processing by the Holy Spirit develops you for your new identity. This new identity prepares you for purpose and the fulfillment of your existence. During the process you will find that you’re unable to fit everywhere and with everyone because God is developing you for a holy lifestyle and for service. Matthew 10:8 says that your reasonable service as a believer is to Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
