In the Gospels, John the Baptist says that he baptizes with water, but Jesus will baptize with the Holy Spirit. In the Church's Charismatic Renewal movement, we do pray for baptism in the Holy Spirit and, lo and behold, dramatic changes take place. All of a sudden, scriptures come alive, Jesus becomes real, praying is a joy, you experience great exuberance, or your heart is set on fire for the Lord. These are all real experiences. Therefore, I ask you, my friends, to ask the Lord to baptize you in the Holy Spirit or release his power in you, to kindle in you the fire of his love. The Holy Spirit is gentle but powerful. Simply pray straight from you heart and let miracles happen. Anything coming from your heart the Lord hears. Anything you ask for for the love of him, he honors. His whole goal is have you live in peace and joy now and enjoy eternal life later.
