If not for the gift of tongues

How do you pray when you have no  strength? Or when all you want can be said in one minute? How have I been praying since April 7th?

First I must thank all those that took time to pray for me because I could not pray much in the first couple of days! Not that I did not want to pray, I just did not have the strength!

One gift that has helped at this time is the gift of praying in the spirit or praying in tongues!

“I thank my God I speak with tongues more than you all;”~‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭14:18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

When I had no idea what was going on, I just prayed in tongues!

For my 6 days stay at the hospital – I gave thanks to God for his mercy, sang some worship songs, listened to worship music but prayed much in the spirit!

These days, I pray for others, the church and my family and I pray much in tongues! I command strength into my limbs, healing to my brain and strength for my mind but I pray much in tongues!

Spend much time praying in tongues privately

When I pray in tongues, I start out just thanking God and speaking words of adoration!

The first couple of minuites are just “normal” conversations! I pray in tongues but my mind is not as focused as it should be! 

I still catch myself thinking about my schedule for the day or about a conversation I just had or my blog. So I bring my mind back to my prayers by recalling a scripture or praying in English for a sentence or two! I then continue to pray in tongues! 

After about 15-20mins sometimes less sometimes more, l begin to sense some intensity in my prayer and a new degree of focus! I usually stand and walk around and pray out loud at this point.

I try to maintain this level of focus and intensity for 30 -45 mins, then I begin to make prophetic declarations in line with what I believe God wants me to speak about.

I also get ideas during this phase of prayer! Divine strategies and instructions become clearer! Impressions and revelations become clearer!

I encourage everyone to spend at least 30mins praying in tongues daily. Not 2 slots of 15mins each. 30 full minutes at once! It’s very powerful!

That’s it for now! Thanks for reading!

  1. Good morning sir and thank you for sharing this solemn truth which I have heard for long buh I’ve refused to be consistent therein.

    I’m taking my stand now by the strength of the Spirit to have a consistent 30mins communication with my father in the Spirit on a daily basis. So help me God. Amen

    You are a huge blessing to me and the entire world. More revelations of God’s Word. Amen
