Praying in tongues is the most incredible spiritual experience I have ever had in my life. It has opened up new realms for me in the spirit and has led to a significant and visible growing and deepening of my faith. My prayer life has been wildly transformed as result of this gift. While praying in the past, I would run out of words. But now when my words run out, the Spirit kicks in! I find it easy now to pray for multiple hours at a time and enjoy every moment of it. I will pray some in English and then in tongues and then something will come to mind and I will switch back and forth. Sometimes I have a general idea of what I am praying in the Spirit and other times I just let it flow without my mind knowing.
I can not recommend seeking this gift enough to you. It will radically change your life. With this gift you will be able to commune with Jesus on a level you never realized was possible. It will transform prayer and worship for you both by yourself and corporately. Having experienced it myself, I can see why the apostle Paul said he desired for the whole church to to have it.
So now is your chance! Repent and get your heart right before God, invite Holy Spirit to come, reach out in faith, and stick with it! As I said earlier, it might not "feel" spiritual at first, but if you stick with it in faith you can be guaranteed that it will come.
Be blessed in the Spirit! I love you and am so glad you took the time to read this. Be rocked in this life and the next with the love of Jesus.
