Class 8: Prayer that Prevails!

Part 5: Tongues: surrender your tongue

(This is part 5 of 9 parts in this class)


The moment you are filled with the Holy Spirit begin praising the Lord aloud and then - as you're praising - allow the Spirit of God to take over the use of your tongue. Surrender your tongue to the operation of the Holy Spirit and when you do a flow of worshipful communication in tongues comes forth.

The utterances arise from within you. There is a wellspring of life within the Spirit-filled believer. It is from this well-spring that tongues arise by the operation of the Holy Spirit.


Paul wrote to the Corinthians,

If I pray in an (unknown) tongue, my spirit - by the Holy Spirit within me - prays.

1 Corinthians 14:14 - Amplified Bible


Paul spoke in tongues liberally. He declared,

I thank God, I speak with tongues more than ye all.

1 Corinthians 14:18 - KJV


Follow Paul's lead and speak in tongues liberally. Your speech in your tongue may be awkward at first, like a baby's, but in time it will flow easily with increasing power and fluency.
