While we await to see the fulfillment of the Promise of Jehovah God to rid the earth of all evil, I believe he is telling us to use the time now to build our faith up. NO matter how good we think we are, we still have to render an account to God. SO for now, let us work out as many flaws in ourselves as we can, and work on becoming approved by God. Build ourselves up now, while we wait on Jehovah for everlasting life.

I believe this scripture is telling us to surrender to the Holy Ghost so that He can build us up. So he can give us what we need. Because the Word reminds us that we don 't know what we ought to pray for.

To be filled with the Holy Spirit is to be filled with Christ. The Holy Spirit came to glorify Christ. Therefore, if I am filled with the Spirit, I am abiding in Christ. I am walking in the light as He is the light, and the blood of Jesus Christ will cleanse and keep on cleansing me from all unrighteousness. I am controlled by Christ because the word "filling" means to be controlled. And if I am controlled -- not as a robot but as one who is led and empowered by the Spirit -- the Lord Jesus will walk around in my body and live His resurrection life in and through me.

A beautiful verse if understood correctly. Since vs.19 infers that believers *have* the Spirit then *praying in the Spirit* would not make sense and be redundant.
I researched the Greek word *In G1722* and found that the preposition *to* makes better sense.
Jude 1:20 "Praying to the Holy Spirit (fully God)",
who teaches, guides, sanctifies, etc and speaks to us makes much better sense.
Would we not converse back? This is a form of trust, love, worship, prayer and fellowshipping.
