When you are baptized in the Holy Spirit, you receive a gift from God—the gift of speaking in tongues. It is a powerful gift that every believer should desire. In fact, here is one of the benefits of praying in tongues or praying in the Holy Ghost:
Praying in Tongues Allows You to Speak Directly to God
“For if you can 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.” –1 Corinthians 14:2
When you pray in tongues, you are praying God’s will directly to Him. It allows your mind to get out of the way so your Spirit can commune with the Father.
Are you filled with the Holy Ghost? Spend at least 30 minutes today, pray in tongues, and strengthen your faith, according to Jude 1:20. If you are not yet filled with the Holy Ghost, you can ask the Lord right now to fill you with His Spirit. You don’t have to wait until you get to Church. People have been filled with the Holy Ghost at home while doing morning or evening devotion. Some have been filled in their sleep after praying and asking the Lord Jesus to fill them, and He did.
