The Act of Prayer part 3 – What You Must Never Forget
“Go yea therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you and, I am with you always, even into the end of the world. Amen.”
Before now we saw how relevant prayer is and the how God treats it as important. The next thing to know is how we pray, so the question now is, how do we pray? The primary way a believer prays is through tongues (1 Corinthians 14:2-4,jude 20) praying in the spirit (praying in tongues) means praying beyond the mind, therefore engaging only things found in the spirit. When we pray, we pray the written words of scripture (Romans 12:12), and the written words instructs us to pray (Colossians 9:2, Ephesians 6:17-18).
When we pray in tongues, we are sure to never miss it. It is very important to know that we are entitled to the gift of speaking in tongues, and it is our right as believers. So if you are a believer then you can speak in tongues. Speaking in tongues is part of the gifts of the Holy Ghost. As believers you have the Holy Spirit in you and if you have the source of the gifts, then you have all the gifts and you flow in them. You just have to confess it (I Corinthian 12:1-31)
Apostle Paul says in verse 1 that as spiritual men, we should not be ignorant of the gifts we have but rather we should use them. In verse 31, he talks about how we should desire them and so in other words, all it takes is your desire. They all belong to you (these gifts of the Spirit), just desire them and they are all yours. For those who couldn’t speak in tongues before, or didn’t know that it was your right to, now you know and since you know, you are confident and bold to speak, however and wherever. So speak in tongues, pray with the language of believers and edify yourself.
I devote myself to prayer, praying always, praying in the spirit singing in the spirit, and as I do so, I am edified, I have direction, and I know what to do. (As you pray, begin to pray in the spirit)
