Pray in TonguesHow does the Spirit begin to pray? In other tongues. Paul said, "When I speak in tongues my spirit
prays, but my understanding is unfruitful." It is your spirit linking directly with your body. It comes
when you reach that point of breakthrough.
Now there are a lot of people who do not understand this. They say, "Well, I have the Spirit of God
when I was saved. Why must I receive the baptism of the Spirit?" There are others who say, "You
don’t get the Spirit until the anointing has come upon you." We have these two extremes. But you
have the Spirit. You had the inner anointing from the moment you were born again. You had your
underground stream. But there needs to come a channel that is created. That channel that is created is
the ability to speak with other tongues.
If you want to be a prophet and you do not want to speak in other tongues, then you might as well go
home. I mean it. You can have a degree of revelation, but if you want the anointing to gush forth; if
you want to enter into New Testament prophetic power that goes beyond what the Old Testament
guys had, you are going to have to learn to cause the flow to take place, so that when the anointing
comes upon you there comes a gushing forth from within that you can speak forth the power of God.
