The Holy Spirit Helps Us

Jesus promised to send his disciples a helper. Jesus told the disciples to wait and pray for the Holy Spirit.

Sometimes it is hard to wait and pray when we need help. We can take comfort in Jesus' promise. The Holy Spirit will give us the strength and courage to get through even the most difficult times.
