My first experience with Holy ghost baptism, with the evidence of speaking in tongues, was from my mum. We were asleep that night when I started hearing her speak in a strange language. I thought something had gone wrong with her. She later motioned to me that all was well. I later understood “that strange language” to be one of the greatest blessings of the believer.

Friend, have you tapped into the power of praying in the Holy ghost? It is “that strange language” that brings about unusual manifestations in the life of the believer. Just as it was in the days of the Apostles, people would not stop mocking the practise of speaking in tongues, but you must never let others mock what is making you.

“And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?” (Acts 2:12)? Perhaps, you are also asking, “what meaneth this?” Or may be people around you make you feel somehow when you exercise yourself in praying in the Holy ghost. Well, it is the gift of God given to you when you got baptised in the Holy ghost. It is the believer’s prayer language.

Praying in tongues is the gateway to every other spiritual realities; it opens doors of access into the things of the Spirit. When you don’t pray in the Spirit you would be shut out, as it were, from the things of the Spirit made available for your profiting (1 Corinthians 12:7). Praying in tongues is one way to confuse the devil as he does not understand that language; it is a mystery (1 Corinthians 14:2).

When you don’t know what to do, pray in the Spirit because, “…the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God…”(1 Corinthians 2:10). When you feel down; spiritually, emotionally or physically, learn to, “build up yourself on your most holy faith by praying in the Holy ghost” (Jude 1:20). You can run sickness out of your body by tapping into the omnipotence of God via praying in the Spirit (Romans 8:11).

Notice what Apostle Paul said that, “…I pray in tongues more than you all…”(1 Corinthians 14:18). This must have been one of his secrets. You can also tap into this blessedness as you spend time daily and consistently praying in the Spirit. Don’t wait to be led, you have been blessed with the ability (1 Corinthians 14:15). This is how to be in the will of God (Romans 8:27-28). This is how to get kingdom results. Amen!
