We will look at this topic for some time on the note of prayers because this is will aid our prayers. But we will not go too deep on it, we will just touch a few part of it and then we will refer to some links and a book on it.
“Our prayers are effective when we pray more in tongues”
We need to become a people that pray more in tongues. Let’s look at the word
- THE HOLY SPIRIT AND POWER
Tongues is one of God’s blessings for man and we must pray more in tongues like Paul said that he speak in tongues even more than the folks in the Corinthians church
1 Corinthians 14:18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:
We understand by the word of God that the Holy Ghost is the promise of the Father to us and that the receiving of the Holy Spirit is power unto us
Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the PROMISE OF MY FATHER UPON YOU: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with POWER FROM ON HIGH.
We saw that Jesus said to them specifically where to gather until they receive that power
Acts 1:8 But ye shall RECEIVE POWER, AFTER THAT THE HOLY GHOST is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
We see that there is a link in the receiving of the Holy Ghost and power, no wonder Paul asked some believers in Ephesus that do you receive the Holy Ghost since you believe?
Acts 19:2 He said unto them, HAVE YE RECEIVED THE HOLY GHOST SINCE YE BELIEVED? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
I believe Paul asked because he felt they lack something in their faith. The presence of the Holy Ghost in a believers life is power in the life of the believer. We must understand that praying in tongues is through the help of the Holy Spirit and if the Holy Spirit is linked to power then tongues is a powerful tool in prayers because the Holy Spirit is our help when we pray. Our prayers become effective as we pray with the Spirit of God because He is our Helper.
We will look at TONGUES in the next series.
