Praying For The Baptism Of The Holy Spirit

who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit.
Acts 8:15 (NKJV)

We can see that praying to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a must.  Let’s read the story in context.

Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. For as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
Acts 8:14-17 (NKJV)
