I recently received the following from a youtube subscriber named Wendy.
My Name is Wendy, I believe in Christ Jesus and I have been baptized and filled with the Holy I have always wanted to be a prayer warrior. I heard in your message how the devil can get in your head and tell you that you can't do it and you sound stupid and your not as good as everyone else. I know deep down that it is not the truth but it stops me sometimes and has me where I am wondering what other people think...what advice can you give me to help me overcome this feeling, I want all the power that God has for me.. I love to praise him. Can you send me some great praise and worship music? I want to set the atmosphere just right to praise His Might Name.. For He is worthy.
This was my response:
Hi Wendy how are you? Thanks so much for watching my video and for reaching out to me with your questions.
Yes the devil knows how powerful you are against him when you pray in the spirit. First of all praying in the spirit builds up your most holy faith. It makes you strong in the spirit realm (Jude 1:20). When you are strong and built up you can more readily fight against the wilds of the devil and do battle in the realms of the spirit.
Also, please remember that our Heavenly Father is a loving God, he will NEVER tell you that "you sound stupid or not as good as everyone else." So whenever those kinds of negative thoughts come to you....KNOW that it's the devil, the enemy of your soul, trying to stop you from moving into a deeper place in God. Tell him, "satan the Lord rebukes you and I WILL pray in the spirit"
Here is a list of 101 benefits of praying in the spirit. God needs YOU to pray in the spirit so His kingdom can come and His will can be done on the earth. Of course the devil doesn't want this to happen so he will keep whispering in your ears so you will be distracted and unfocused in prayer. You MUST persist so you can do the will of the Father.
This is the worship music playlist that I use to set the atmosphere for my daily prayer time. As you develop more intimacy with God, you will create your own list of music that helps usher you into His presence.
After listening and singing the above songs, I begin worshipping & praising God using this video As I'm worshipping and praising I move into prayers of thanksgiving, petition and intercession as I demonstrate in this video here. After spending about an hour in prayer, I sit and LISTEN to what I hear God saying to me in my spirit. These journal entries sometimes become my daily "Words From The Lord." They become my directives, instructions and visionary things that I need to do in life.
Wendy, I pray that this information has helped you in some way. If you have any other questions regarding praying in tongues, please don't hesitate to ask.
Have a Blessed Day In The Lord and remember to keep praying because "Prayer Changes Everything."
Peace & Blessings,P.S. Here is additional information that will aid you in praying in tongues
