In the last series we looked at THE HOLY SPIRIT AND POWER, we discussed the truth that the Holy Spirit is linked to power and that prayers becomes effective because of the Holy Spirit in us as we pray in tongues. We will continue this series by looking at 

  • TONGUES 

“One of the blessed thing to do in prayer is to pray more in tongues”

As a lover of language(s), I realized that when you speak some people’s language to them they tend to like you and may even help you. In business, when you speak the language of your seller or your client there is a way they open up in favour of you in that business. I tell you God is the same, when we pray in tongues we speak the language of God 

1 Corinthians  14:2  For he that speaketh in an UNKNOWN TONGUE SPEAKETH NOT UNTO MEN, BUT UNTO GOD: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

When you speak in tongues or pray in tongues you speak to God and not to men. This does not mean that when you pray in understanding you do not speak to God. No! God understands all languages 

Psalms  19:3  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

God understand your language, just emphasizing that in praying in tongues we speak the language of God, and not the language of men. I must say that we do need to pray in tongues and in the understanding but pray more in tongues. We understand by the word of God that as we pray in tongues and give thanks in tongues we do well indeed

1 Corinthians 14: 14,17 For if I pray in a tongue…For you indeed give thanks well…  (NKJV) 

We should pray more in tongues and also give thanks in tongues. There are reasons why we need to pray more in tongues because it will help our growth and the understanding of His word. 

In the next series we will look at THE BENEFITS OF PRAYING IN TONGUES
