Focused Praying in Tongues

Lesson 12

Praying in tongues is also important when you want to ascend. I get up early most mornings and pray in tongues for about an hour before ascending. I’ve done this for years.

1 Corinthians14:4 (AMPC) says, “He who speaks in a [strange] tongue edifies and improves himself…” Speaking in tongues stirs up your spirit and gets you ready to go – it is like taking vitamins. You get edified, improved, stronger and more able.

Jude 1:20 (AMPC) reads, “But you, beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit…” Praying in the Holy Spirit will raise your building up from the foundation –allowing you to go higher. Just as in worship, you need to keep your mind focused while you’re praying in tongues because you can speak in tongues and formulate your grocery list at the same time!

1 Corinthians 14:14-15 (AMPC) informs, “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]. Then what am I to do? I will pray with my spirit [by the Holy Spirit that is within me], but I will also pray [intelligently] with my mind and understanding; I will sing with my spirit [by the Holy Spirit that is within me], but I will sing [intelligently] with my mind and understanding also.” If you are praying in tongues and just letting your mind wander, you are not bearing any fruit. You need to keep your mind focused while you are praying in your holy language. I have worship DVD’s that have subtitles and I read the subtitles while I am praying in tongues.

I did this experiment. While praying in tongues, I let my mind wander for 15 minutes. I thought about going to have coffee with a friend, etc. Afterward, I realized I could not feel any Glory! I could not sense the burning or tingling on my face. Then, for 15 minutes, I prayed in the Spirit intelligently by keeping my mind focused on the worship or on Jesus. When my mind would get distracted, I brought it back to Jesus. In this case, the Glory exploded on me! My whole body was burning. Keep your mind focused while you are praying in tongues and acceleration will happen.

Now that you have washed in the blood and prayed in tongues, make some decrees. You have the right to do this! Job 22:28 (AMPC) tells us, “You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways.”

When you begin to decree scripture out of your mouth, things get established for you. Say, “I am going to do this,” and BAM, it happens. You have established it with your decree. God’s light and His favor shine upon your ways and make it happen. So, before you go up, you can begin by decreeing that you have the legal right to go up. Decree Philippians 3:20 by saying, “I am a citizen of Heaven, so I have the rights to all the privileges and franchises of Heaven.” Then decree Ephesians 2:6, by saying, “I am seated in heavenly realms with Christ. I have the legal right to go up!” The blood of Jesus gives you the legal right to go up and just like these men: Moses, Aaron, and John the Revelator, decree, “I am a man (mankind) and I can go up too, because I have the legal right to do so!”

Activate your faith. Faith is a gift from Holy Spirit, so ask for that gift! Enoch was taken up to Heaven by his faith. Hebrews 11:5-6 (AMPC) says, “Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to Heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found, because God had translated him. For even before he was taken to Heaven, he received testimony [still on record] that he had pleased and been satisfactory to God. But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].”

Enoch was a man of great faith, so much so, that it was his faith that enabled him to ascend up into Heaven without first tasting death! We don’t have to pass away to go up into Heaven! Men in the Bible did it and I do it every day. Enoch ascended – got translated – into Heaven without having to see death. He believed that it could happen – and it happened! Use your faith and it can happen for you too!

    1 Corinthians 12:30-31 (NKJV)
    30 Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 31 But earnestly desire the best[a] gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.

    I attended Women On The Frontlines in May 2017 and a new world opened up for me. I desire to speak in tongues but so far, nothing. Can you please pray in agreement with me that I will start speaking in tongues? Thank you so much❣️ Cheryl

      Hi Cheryl, you will begin to speak in other languages very soon.
      When you’re at home, in your car, in the restroom, etc begin to speak out loud to God, in English.
      Thanking Him for this and for that and for that and this; your words wont be sufficient to get across to Him how
      much you are really wanting to thank Him so your spirit will step in by using the sounds that you’re putting
      forth from your mouth and your spirit will use words that are deeper than English and will absolutely continue the conversation with Him.
      You’ll be amazed
      Let your spirit keep talking; you have much to say.

        In deed is true, one day while I was praying in words I made this decree that I am sitting in heavenly realm with christ, and all of a sudden I started speaking in tongues and I cried so hard I try to stop the tongues but.. It kept on and through that I started prophesying over our family and infact my whole body was sweating the was my first encounter with the tongues speaking.. Thank you very much for this.. And remember you have to decree with faith..
