I. Reason 7 why believers should pray in other tongues is
because it gives us spiritual refreshing.
“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely;
and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved
blameless at the coming of our LORD Jesus Christ” (1
Thessalonians 5:23, NKJV).
We are a three-part being: spirit, soul and body.
o The mind and body both try to dominate, but it is our spirit that
is to lead. o The spirit of man is the most important part.
Pray in other tongues to receive the supernatural refreshing
o “For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to
To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the
weary to rest;
and this is the refreshing” (Isaiah 28:11-12).
If we take the rest and refreshing of praying in other tongues
by faith, it will
cause us to receive physical, mental and inward rest.
Bro. George would say:
o Say this: “I refuse the pressure and stress. I choose instead to
enter the rest.”
When Celeste was in ICU for a bleeding condition it was very
physically taxing on me. The Lord led me to this revelation of
praying in the spirit to be refreshed physically. I would walk the
halls for 10 minutes or better yet if I could go outside for longer
periods of time. I found praying in the spirit gave me the physical
strength to be there for my wife.
“So then we must be eager to experience this faith-rest life, so
that no one falls
short by following the same pattern of doubt and unbelief”
(Hebrews 4:11, TPT).
We need this spiritual refreshing in these days of turmoil,
perplexity and anxiety.
o “For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit [by the Holy Spirit
within me] prays, but my mind is unproductive [it bears no fruit
and helps nobody]” (1 Corinthians 14:14, AMPC).
Praying in tongues refreshes and relieves the mind of the task
Praying in tongues is praying on a level higher than mental
o Your mind will argue and continue trying to dominate. It will even
information to stay in charge!
The writer of Hebrews repeatedly reminds us to enter the rest
of God by faith
(see Hebrews 4:1-10).
o Praying in tongues is one way we do that
