Prayer Summary for July 29


The following excerpt is taken from Tongues Beyond the Upper Room by Kenneth E. Hagin:

Prayer Apart From Our Understanding

Ephesians 6:18
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication IN THE SPIRIT, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication FOR ALL SAINTS.”

When we pray with other tongues, we are able to not only build ourselves up, but also to fulfill God’s command to pray for all the saints. There is no way we could pray for all saints with our understanding because in the natural we don’t know all the saints. But God has provided this means of supernatural communication, apart from our understanding, to enable us to do just that.

If Only I Had Understood

It would be good to just stop here for a moment and think about the amazing thing God has done for us: He has provided a way for us whereby our spirits may pray apart from our minds: “For if I pray in an unknown tongue, MY SPIRIT PRAYETH…’ (1 Cor. 14:14). Through this gift of speaking with tongues, our spirits can now communicate directly with God, Who is a spirit being.

You see, once you get filled with the Spirit, for the first time your own spirit can talk directly to God. Before that, you could talk to God with your mind and, of course, your emotions were involved. But speaking in tongues is a means of Spirit-to-Spirit communication.

You may remember what Jesus said to the woman at the well of Samaria (John 4:4–26). The woman said to Jesus, “Our forefathers worshiped God in this mountain, but the Jews say we have to worship God in Jerusalem. What do You say about it?”

When Jesus answered, He didn’t say that either of those views was right. Instead, He said, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (v. 24). We don’t have to worship God on a mountain in Samaria, and we don’t have to worship Him in Jerusalem. God is a spirit being, and we can worship Him anywhere!

However, Jesus said that the time has come when you must worship God in spirit and in truth because He is Spirit. This gives you another indication of the value of speaking in tongues. When you pray in tongues, your spirit man is in direct contact with God, Who is a Spirit. Remember, Paul said that when you’re praying in an unknown tongue, your spirit prays (1 Cor. 14:14). You’re talking directly to God in a divine, supernatural way.

We feel some things turning that have never turned this way before
The power of the Holy Ghost is working in and through us to bring about the turning
Never staying the same and status quo, but continually moving, changing, and growing
Lord, we are reverent and grateful for all the things that were settled at the cross
You will lead and guide us into all truth
Lord, we magnify and thank You for the blood of Jesus!
We pray for the leaders and those who are called
Align their steps with Your plans and cover them with Your wings
Room to move!
Call for it and expect it!
The Word is the ROCK on which we stand
Contending and moving forward
Reaching for every nation and people group
There is a hearing and a leading—preparing that way
Receiving plans, ideas, recipes, and concepts from heaven
Cutting through every adversity for the way has already been prepared
There is a passing of the baton—a transfer of the power of the Holy Ghost
Resources of every kind showing up in overflow
Knowing what to do and where to go
Answers coming personally and corporately—sudden change
Things will continue to change
Lord, we watch over that way
Companies coming up and coming through
Stay close and connected in the waters that are flowing
Filling in the positions
The eyes have to open wider—they have to be alert to see the steps and plans
It is a continual change
Hidden things are being uncovered and revealed
Transfers that cause great transformations
Dig in deeper and stand firm in the faith
Tying up every loose end
Moving out of the old ways and moving into new Holy Ghost ways
We shall not back off for we are strengthened by the power of God!
Father, You are the glory of our lives
Today is a new day!
You get all the glory, and we thank You for guiding us by Your Spirit
