>In searching for a definition of the Greek word EN from which the English 
>word "in" is mostly translated into English, I found in Joseph Henry 
>Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon, Page 211, this:
>
>
>Under his No. 6--
>
>
>"ingrafted as it were in Christ, in fellowship and union with Christ, with 
>the Lord.
>
>by virtue of spiritual fellowship, union with Christ.  In things pertaining 
>to Christ, in the cause of Christ."
>
>
>Thayer's comments at his No. 6:  "of that in which any person or thing is 
>inherently fixed, implanted or with which it is intimately connected. a. of 
>the whole in which a part inheres."  (And Thayer gave John 15:4 to 
>illustrate that.)
>
>
>So when in many contexts "praying in the spirit" occurs this definition and 
>Thayer's comments would apply and make that clearer.
