EXCITING BENEFITS OF PRAYER


EXCITING BENEFITS OF PRAYER
Pray without ceasing
 (1 Thessalonians 5:17). 
w e d n e s d a y 20
When  you  understand  the  importance  and 
higher purposes of prayer, you’ll always be 
willing and excited to pray, especially in other tongues. 
One of the beautiful things the Holy Spirit has done in 
our lives as God’s children is to give us the ability to 
speak in other tongues.
When  we  speak  in  tongues,  the  utterance,  the 
words we speak, aren’t man-made but from the Lord. 
Moreover, we aren’t speaking to men but to God: “For 
he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not 
unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth 
him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries”  (1 
Corinthians 14:2). When you pray in tongues, you’re in 
fellowship with the Father; you’re communicating with 
Him through the Spirit in a heavenly language. What a 
blessing that is! 
Also, praying in tongues helps to stir up the power 
of God resident in your spirit. Though that power came 
into your life when you received the Holy Spirit (Acts 
1:8),  you’ve  got  to  keep  it  active  and  in  use  for  His 
glory. 
Praying  in  tongues  will  keep  you  more  “fit” 
spiritually,  and  responsive  to  the  guidance  and 
promptings of the Spirit. The more time you spend in 
fellowship with the Lord, praying in the Holy Ghost, the 
more His character and personality are revealed in, and 
manifested through you. 
Some are only compelled to pray when they face 
crises  in  life,  and  that’s  not  right.  We’re  called  into 
fellowship with our heavenly Father; that’s what prayer, 
and praying, is primarily for: fellowship! 
Take your personal and corporate times of prayer 
very seriously. Create the opportunities in the course 
of your day to fellowship with the Lord through prayer, 
and your life will flourish from glory to glory.
PRAYER
How great thou art O Lord! Your glory, greatness, 
and majesty are beyond description. Thank you for 
your presence in my life, and your Word that builds 
and  transforms  me  in  ever-increasing  glory.  Thank 
you  for  the  privilege  of  speaking  in  other  tongues 
and to fellowship with you in such deep intimacy, 
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
