1 Corinthians 14:2 NLT: For if you have the ability to speak in tongues, you will be talking only to God, since people won’t be able to understand you. You will be speaking by the power of the Spirit, but it will all be mysterious.
Sometimes in life, we want to have a private discussion with someone close to us in such a way that only the both of you can understand each other. Same it is with God when he gave you the ability to pray in the spirit. The word of God says that you will be talking to God alone. Not even the devil can understand the things you are sharing with God. Guess what, the devil becomes frustrated at this and therefore seeks every means to discourage you.
For when you pray in plain words, the devil tries to tempt you especially with what you just prayed about. Trying to discredit and lie to you, negating every truth that God has said to you. But when he doesn’t even know what you have said to God in prayer while praying in the spirit, there’s nothing he can do about it to tempt you.
Having gotten this understanding, know that each time you pray in the spirit, things that concern you is brought to God in line with the will of God for you. You can rest assured of speedy answers to your prayers. That’s a manifestation of what God has already done for you. He has answered all your prayers even before you pray. So you are only realizing it and taking what belongs to you. Praise the Lord.
Make out time daily to pray more in the spirit and pray also in plain words.
Declare to yourself loud: I will make out time to pray in the spirit every day. Hallelujah.
Spirit of the living God, take over my speech and speak through me to the father in prayer. In Jesus Name. Amen.
