Open Heaven 18 December 2022 TOPIC: Why You Should Speak In Tongues
MEMORISE: “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth 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)
READ: Romans 8:26-27 (KJV)
26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth 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.
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Titus 1 – Philemon 1
Open Heaven 18 December 2022 MESSAGE:
There is one great and powerful gift that God has given to the New Testament Church; unfortunately, many take it for granted. That gift is the Holy Spirit and especially, speaking in tongues. The Bible says that when you speak in tongues, it is the Holy Spirit praying for you.

The Holy Spirit Himself is praying for you. You can be sure that He will pray the right prayers and they will all be answered because He is the Spirit of God Himself who will bring the answers to you. The gift of the Holy Spirit is such a powerful one!
Imagine that you need a job in a big company and the owner sends his only son to help you. The son meets you, becomes your friend, then introduces you to another relative who helps you to write the application letter. Also, the only people who will sit at the panel where your application for this job is to be reviewed are the owner of the company, his son and this relative of theirs. I am sure you know already that you would get the job.
God is the owner of this big company and He is the one who sent Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son who becomes your friend when you get born again. The Holy Spirit is the family member the Son introduces to you and even places inside you. Speaking in tongues is the Holy Spirit writing your request to God for you. You can now see why you should speak in tongues more often.
If you speak in tongues for at least one hour every day, your life will be smoother than if you only speak in tongues once in a while. There is a lot happening in the spirit realm that you don’t know. The Holy Spirit however, knows all things and will say the right prayers through you when you speak in tongues. The Holy Spirit in you helps you pray in tongues to navigate around dangers and optimise opportunities in your future that you don’t know about yet. Speaking in tongues is a powerful gift; use it.
Open Heaven 18 December 2022 ACTION POINT:
Speak in tongues for at least one hour today.

1 Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!that calls me from a world of care,and bids me at my Father’s thronemake all my wants and wishes known.In seasons of distress and grief,my soul has often found relief,and oft escaped the tempter’s snareby thy return, sweet hour of prayer!
2 Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!the joys I feel, the bliss I shareof those whose anxious spirits burnwith strong desires for thy return!With such I hasten to the placewhere God my Savior shows his face,and gladly take my station there,and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!
3 Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!thy wings shall my petition bearto him whose truth and faithfulnessengage the waiting soul to bless.And since he bids me seek his face,believe his word, and trust his grace,I’ll cast on him my every care,and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!
