“But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost” – Jude 20 KJV

In the Church today, scarcely do you hear people praying in the Holy Ghost. In our congregations, scarcely do you hear believers praying in the Holy Spirit, and yet, this is a grace gift that God has given to the Church for these last days. The Holy Spirit is our Helper in these last days. He is our Comforter! He is our Advocate and Intercessor. He has come to strengthen you.

Child of God, you must learn to leverage on the prayer language of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Ghost was poured out upon the Church to help, teach and guide us. He is our Counsellor who enables us to stand tall and live our lives like the gods that we are.

The Bible tells us that it is the Holy Spirit that helps our infirmities. “… For we know not what we should pray for as we ought; but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Romans 8:26 KJV). It is the Holy Spirit that intercedes for us.

The Word of God further tells us in 1Corinthians 14: 4 that he that speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself. In verse 2, it says: “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”(KJV)

In other words, whenever we engage in the prayer language of the Holy Spirit, we speak mysteries and divine wisdom that God has ordained for our glory.

The question is: When was the last time you prayed in the Holy Ghost, apart from when we gather together in the Church? When was the last time you spoke in tongues for one hour?

We must effectively engage the prayer language of the Spirit. It is a gift of grace given to us to rise above mediocrity and walk in excellence. Don’t just pray in tongues this month and stop, make it an integral part of your life.
