Pray for Understanding of the Law

We live in a world that tries to color everything in shades of gray rather than in black and white.  If a person breaks the law, there are reasons for it, reasons that justify the breaking of the law.

Certainly there are some laws that are clearer than others.  Whether the law is justified or not, a speed limit of 45 means 45 and not "45 unless you are running late for work."

Even if we know God's laws, we may forget them at important times - like when we're angry - or we might not understand them.  Is tithing still relevant today?  Are we expected to keep the Sabbath like in the Old Testament?

This is why it is important that we pray for understanding.  If we could do it on our own we wouldn't need the Holy Spirit.  But God gave us the Spirit as a gift and we should call upon Him for guidance when we need help.

Jesus was very clear to His disciples in John 16 that He wasn't going to leave them alone.  The Holy Spirit is meant to give us understanding and to help us follow Jesus' commands.
