Have you ever been on a roller coaster and wondered who was in control? The answer is always the same—not you!

There’s something terrifying about not having control.

What about the control of our life?
-In one sense, we have no control over the temptations that suddenly appear or the troubles that unexpectedly come our way.
-In another sense, we do have control of the fact that we can avoid what we know might trip us up, and we also have the power of the Holy Spirit living in us.

Our spiritual life doesn’t have to be a roller coaster. We can experience victory in our life.
Acts of the Apostles 4:23-31 NLT

Big Idea of the Message: God’s Spirit helps us pray—and prays for us.
1) The Holy Spirit Intercedes
(write notes below)
Charles Spurgeon:
"Within this narrow house of my body, this tenement of clay, if I be a true believer, there dwells the Holy Ghost, and when I desire to pray I may ask him what I should pray for as I ought, and he will help me. He will write the prayers which I ought to offer upon the tablets of my heart, and I shall see them there, and so I shall be taught how to plead. It will be the Spirit's own self pleading in me, and by me, and through me, before the throne of grace. What a happy man in his law-suit would such a poor man be, and how happy are you and I that we have the Holy Ghost to be our Counselor!"
3) The Holy Spirit Helps with Persecution
