Speaking in tongues is both a miraculous sign and a spiritual weapon. Jesus told His disciples before His ascension into heaven, ‘Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved.… These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.… They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.’” –Mark 16:15-18
From the above verses, Jesus proclaimed several things that would happen to those who followed Him and continued His work – that includes all of us born again believers. Speaking in tongues is one of those gifts, and it empowers us to stand against the work of the enemy.
Praying in tongues is a gift that’s available to every believer. It allows you to pray God’s will to Him. It keeps you in tune with the Holy Spirit and strengthens your spirit as you stand against the work of the devil. Don’t discount this powerful gift from God. Desire it. Embrace it and relish the strength it adds to your spiritual life.
It’s been a week now since I started teaching on this subject. Lots of people are writing to us and telling us how praying in the Holy Ghost has changed their prayer lives. They now enjoy their prayer time and fellowship with the Lord as they pray in the Holy Ghost. Yesterday we saw the power of God move mightily in our service when the whole church began to pray in the Spirit. So don’t stop, keep praying in the Holy Ghost for at least 30 minutes in the morning and at night before bed time and see the hand of God upon your life.
“But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.” Jude 1:20
