Pray in the Spirit!

For he who speaks
in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him;
however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries (1 Corinthians 14:2)
For if I pray in a
tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful
(1 Corinthians
14:14). For who among men knows the
thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one
knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God
(1 Corinthians 2:11 –
NIV). Now He who searches the hearts
knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the
saints according to the will of God
(Romans 8:27).
 
So many Spirit-Filled believers underestimate the power
of praying in the spirit every day. With the baptism with the Holy Spirit, the
Father has given us an ability to pray for things ahead of time. When we pray
in tongues, we are praying out the perfect will of God for our lives.
 
It is not necessary to know what you’re praying about in
tongues for it to be effective. That’s what keeps many believers from spending
more time praying this way. Your mind will tell you’re that you’re wasting your
time while you’re praying in the spirit. And many times the benefits are not
immediately recognizable.
 
Often, I have thoughts come to me, or a reoccurring
impression deep inside about things I need to do or things I need to change.
These impressions come about because I pray in the spirit daily, allowing
spirit to pray about what mind doesn’t know that needs prayer.
 
If you pray in the spirit daily, you’ll find that things
in your life are already prayed about before they come up. I have things happen
in relating to people regularly that I knew would occur simply because I pray
in the spirit and it’s prayed our well in advance.
  
I have a habit of planning ahead and not doing things
suddenly with natural things. Now, since I’ve learned the value of praying in
tongues, I know that I must also pray daily in the spirit to prepare for my
tomorrows.
 
Don’t allow Satan or religious tradition to talk you out
of using this valuable prayer tool of praying in tongues. Satan’s kingdom so
hates this that he’ll do all kinds of things to convince you not to take the
time. Don’t listen to him. Begin today to set aside time to pray in tongues. It
will become your most productive time. Your life will change.
