Praying In Tongues

“FOR THE PROMISE IS TO YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN, AND TO ALL WHO ARE AFAR OFF, AS MANY AS THE LORD OUR GOD WILL CALL” (Acts 2:39).

I-HUMBLE REQUEST

  1. Before you read it, pray a short prayer.
  2. Print it out to have it with you
  3. Keep reading and memorize.
  4. Study all the given verses during your humble times
  5. Apply faith and have a prayerful mood as you study it.

II-PRAYING IN TONGUES

Paying in tongues is praying in the Holy Spirit of God. It is praying by inspiration and empowerment of the Spirit. One cannot pray in the Spirit without preeminently pray in tongues. See 1Cor 14:2, 4. Speaking in tongues is speaking mysteries of the Holy Spirit and something must happen as a result of such anointed prayer, and one who prays in tongues is edified. Only God hears the mystery that is prayed through tongues; Satan becomes confused because he cannot know what one is saying in tongues.

We pray in tongues so that we may pray exactly the will of God. The Holy Spirit who knows the mind of God is the One who groans in us and on our behalf. See Rom 8:26-27.

God said that a believer will receive whatever he prays for so long as he prays according to His will. Now, through praying in tongues, the person always prays according to God’s will because he is directed by the Holy Spirit who searches the mind of God. See 1 John 3:23, 5:14-15; 1Cor 2:6-16.

Through praying in tongues we do easily change the world of evil, because the Holy Spirit is the One who knows what is going on in the world. See 2 Chronicles 16:9.

To pray in tongues is to pray without ceasing (Eph 6:18), because one cannot seek what to say in the prayer; the Spirit takes over!

If one wants to be filled with the Spirit he prays without ceasing-without being bored by praying any time he wants to. Such a person will seek an opportunity to pray no matter how he may be so committed or so tired etc. See Eph 5:18.

The primary purpose of praying in tongues is to enable us to wield the sword of the Holy Spirit which is the revealed-Word of God by praying without ceasing, to receive God’s leading, and to be edified in our lives as we speak to God.

Praying in tongues builds one up in faith and thus he overcomes the devil always. See Jude 20.

Without praying in tongues, believers do struggle a lot. They keep on backsliding, and they find it hard to grow in faith. Even when worldliness occurs in their church, they are not sensitive enough to sense that it is the craftiness of the devil. No wonder we hear of homosexuality even in leadership of some churches! In some churches we hear divisions, immoralities, alcohol, smoking, gossips, lust for money, pride, lack of willingness to serve the Lord, boring church services, etc.

III-KEY FACTS ON PRAYING IN TONGUES

1-Every born again child of God can pray in tongues. Sure? Yes, sure, because it is a promise, not for some people, but for all believers. See Acts 2:4, 33, 38-39; 4:31; 10:44-46; 13:52, 1 Cor 14:18, John 6:63-64, Luke 11:13 Mark 16:17, Joel 2:28-29. A promise is there to be claimed. God did not say that this promise is for some people; but even if it was for some people, you must claim to be among those “some people”. God gives it as He wills in terms of when one is ready to receive that promise, but not in terms of to which some people only….

2-There is SPEAKING in tongues as a GIFT which my need interpretation so that the church may receive the message, but there is PRAYING in tongues as a SIGN of praying in the Spirit without the need for interpretation. You notice the deference.

3-There are so many faithful believers who do not pray in tongues. That is due to lack of knowledge about tongues, as well as lack of desiring the promise. See Acts 19:1-7. Such believers find it hard to remain in the will of God.

4-If one has a hidden sin in his live; he can never receive the promise of praying in tongues. Remember, the Holy Spirit is holy and He cannot be around sinful heart. See Rom 12:1-2, 1Cor 6:19-20.

5-It is the will of God that you too pray in tongues because God wants you to pray exactly His will. See 1 Cor 14:5, 18; Isaiah 28:11-12, Acts 2:39.

6-It is always good to avoid listening to who ignore or discourage the praying in tongues. See 1 Cor 14:38-40. Such people, if born again are then “cold” believers, no wander they keep on struggling to overcome the devil.

7-Praying in tongues should be accompanied or overshadowed by the love of God (AGAPE-love). See 1 Cor 13:1. Imagine if you pray in tongues but after that you hate other believers; you do not value them! That is then a sign of pride.

8-Praying in tongues goes hand in hand with praying with one’s understanding (human language). You may start praying as usual, then after some minutes you pray in the Spirit as He leads you. See 1 Cor 14:15.

9-In public meetings, praying in tongues depends on program. If people are given a chance for each to pray audibly at ago, then it is your good opportunity to pray in tongues until the programmer says otherwise….See 1Cor 14:26.

IV-RECEIVE THE PROMISE OF PRAYING IN TONGUES

1-Make sure that you are born again; that is Jesus is your personal Savior and Lord.

2-Make sure that you do not have any hidden sin in your life.( Sins like evil thoughts, idol worship, sorcery, alcohol, smoking and related drugs, listening to or dancing music which do not honor God-secular music, watching pornography, masturbation, romantic caress, doing immorality, tattoo, gossips, pride, etc). If any, you repent now, and reject the devil and all his works.

3-Start DESIRING deeply the promise of praying in tongues. Be telling God so daily.

4-Form today, be praying audibly and for long; (like 30 minutes or so). Do not, however, disturb others with your voice. You can pray better in your room alone with God, and may be you pray while standing or so…. With guidelines, fasting is also important.

5-Do not lose hope. Just keep on praying daily for that promise until it comes. Keep waiting for the Lord. See Acts 1:4; Psalm 130:5-6.

V-HOW I BEGAN TO PRAY IN TONGUES

When I received the Lord as my personal Savior, I did not begin to pray in tongues there by there (some do). I knew if Jesus comes to take His church, I will be among the number.

I, however, was not satisfied when I see that some believers pray in tongues while I do not. Some could tell me that may be I am not born again, but many are those who told me that praying in tongues is for some people…That made me seek the will of God on that through humble study on tongues.

As I seriously continue to study, God Himself started preparing me by giving me surety that my time is too near. All the above five points in number IV were alright in my life….

So, one day! Unforgettable day in my life that night! As I was praying alone in my room audibly! I said ” Lord Jesus, if you want I can pray in tongues…give me your new tongue please…touch my lips now….” Suddenly!!!!!  My Jesus did it… My language changed and I began to pray in tongues. Praise the Lord!

I prayed in tongues for about five minutes or so, then after I finished, I just shed tears of joy before the Lord. From that time until now, I can see a real change in my life. AMEN.

VI- A PRAYER FOR TONGUES BY FAITH

“LORD JESUS, YOU ARE MY LORD AND SAVIOR, AND YOU ARE THE BAPTIZER IN THE HOLY SPIRIT. I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT I TOO SHOULD BEGIN TO PRAY IN TONGUES. I DESIRE THAT PROMISE NOW. BAPTIZE ME TOO AS YOU DO TO OTHERS, SO THAT I CAN PRAY THE MIND OF GOD AND PRAY WITHOUT CEASING. I REJECT THE DEVIL AND ALL HIS WORKS. I RECEIVE THE PROMISE OF PRAYING IN TONGUES IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN.

Have faith that you are going to pray in tongues in due time for the glory and honor of the Lord.
