There is power in prayer, yes, especially praying in tongues. But why haven’t your prayers been answered?
If you have been praying and nothing has happened to your situation, something is definitely wrong somewhere.
So the question is, how does prayer work? Who can pray to get results?
Elijah shut the heavens through his prayers. Joshua commanded the sun to stand still through powerful declarations.
These Bible characters are human beings like you and me.
What did they do differently? In other words, there is more we need to do to discover the eternal riches of spiritual life.
The wealth that is locked up in the spirit realm is more than the wealth that is available in this world. There is so much more in the realm of the spirit.
Isaiah 45:3, “And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.”
What do you gain when you pray in tongues?
The Holy Ghost is a free gift to you with supernatural ability to help you tap into the spiritual riches and wealth.
Praying in tongues is partnering with the Holy Ghost. You would be edified and built up from your low, natural level to a supernatural level where you partake of God’s riches.
There are treasures in the spirit realm that can be transferred to the physical realm.
Yet there is warfare and controversy about speaking in tongues. The devil fights it so much and he does it in a subtle way.
The fact is that the right way to pray effectively is to pray in tongues. The devil knows that praying in tongues unleashes the supernatural to you.
The enemy fights praying in tongues so much because your way out of crisis is to pray in other tongues.
Speaking in other tongues is a supernatural language that teaches of the accomplishments and investments of God in Christ Jesus; it reveals to you the breadth and length and depth and height of the riches in Christ Jesus.
Praying in tongues pulls out everything that is not of God in your life and brings in everything that Jesus has done for you.
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints, (Ephesians 6:18).
