What if you could pray for a situation or person you don’t even know about and still pray the perfect outcome?
According to the Word, you can!
One of the many benefits of praying in tongues is that through us, the Holy Spirit is praying mysteries, secret truths and hidden things (1 Corinthians 14:2).
We are praying for people and situations that we don’t necessarily know of or understand, but the Holy Spirit who knows ALL THINGS can still, through us, pray over those hidden situations without us having to have any natural knowledge about them!
Read this simply amazing testimony from Heather…“I was woken up at 2am every day for a number of weeks. The Lord would tell me – “Get out of bed and pray!” I decided to obey even though it was the middle of winter and very cold. I used to pray in the spirit and then get back into bed again. This went on for a number of weeks and then one morning I awoke at the same time but this time the Lord said to me “Get out of bed and pray – GREAT DANGER! I got out again and prayed in the spirit for everyone that I could think of and when I felt the burden lift I got back into bed again. Later that morning I went around to visit my daughter. Her husband said to me “Your daughter nearly killed us this morning”. He went on to explain that at 2am my daughter had woken up and smelt gas in the house. She quickly went out to the kitchen and found that she had not turned the gas on the hotplates off properly. The flame was out and gas was pouring into the house. Even the dogs were groggy. Her husband got up and quickly pulled the plug on the heater (which had a flame). It was on a timer to turn on at 4.00 am in the morning. With all that gas in the house, there would have been a tremendous explosion that would have killed them all. God had been priming me for a few weeks to get out of bed and pray. The Lord knew how I love my bed, especially when it is cold. That is why he disciplined me for a few weeks to obey his prompting, otherwise, I might have just stayed in bed…lol! I had no idea what I was even praying for, but after hearing that news I knew it was for my daughter and her family. Funny, the strange thing was, he didn’t wake me again after that. God is so good!”
Praise the Lord! That’s how much He LOVES US!
We don’t have to know or understand who, why, or what we are praying for, we just have to be obedient to pray…because God NEEDS US to!
Through us, the Spirit is praying the PERFECT PRAYER for situations in our family, community – even people we may never know or meet – and…(super important right now!) our NATION.
When we allow Him to pray those perfect prayers through us, we can be assured that ALL THINGS will work together for OUR good – the good of those who love Him and are called for His purpose! (Romans 8:28) That’s GOOD NEWS! #faithtalks
