Do you know if you are In Christ. It is called being saved being
born again, receiving Jesus. The only way for you to be "In Christ",
is to let Christ be "in you". In other words you need to receive
Jesus as your Lord and savior. When you receive Him into your heart
and believe in Him, He gives you His Life and you become united to
Just confess that Jesus is your Lord and believe that He rose from
dead to make you righteous and you will be saved (Romans 10:9,10).

How to Receive Your Heavenly Prayer Language
His Inspirational Gifts:
Manifestation and Church Gift of Divers Kinds of
Mark 16:17...Divers kinds of tongues is supernatural utterance by
the Holy Spirit in languages never learned by the speaker, not
understood by the mind of the speaker, nor necessarily always
understood by the hearer. Speaking with tongues has nothing
whatsoever to do with linguistic ability; it has nothing to do with
the mind or the intellect of man. It is a vocal miracle.
Tongues is primarily a devotional gift
Jesus told his disciples, "After the Holy Ghost has come upon you,
you shall receive power" (Acts 1:8). The evidence of this baptism is
the gifts of the Spirit, with tongues almost invariably coming
first. There are various kinds of tongues. One type-the prayer and
worship language-is for private use and personal edification. It
does not need to be interpreted. In fact, Paul informs us that
although he spoke in tongues more often than all the Corinthians,
when he did, his understanding was unfruitful. He describes his use
of a prayer language as praying "with the spirit" (1 Corinthians
14:14-15). This prayer and worship language is indispensable for
every Spirit-filled Christian.
Public ministry of tongues
Paul teaches that only a few believers will be used in what we
would call the public ministry of tongues, because he said in 1
Corinthians 12:30, "do all speak with tongues?" Some take that out
of context and say, "Speaking in tongues isn't for everyone. You can
be filled with the Spirit without speaking with tongues." However,
we must remember that Paul is talking about the ministry gift of
tongues, because he began by saying, "And God hath set some in the
church...diversities of tongues" (1 Corinthians 12:28). Then Paul
asked, "Are all apostles?...do all speak with tongues?" The obvious
answer is no. But Paul is talking here about public ministry. We
should not be too concerned about our ministering in tongues and
interpreting. We should be primarily concerned with maintaining
tongues in the place where they principally belong-as a devotional
gift to assist us in the worship of God.
Why should I speak in tongues?
Speaking in tongues is initial evidence of Holy Spirit
baptism...Acts 2:1-4; 10:44-48; 19:1-6.
Speaks unto God...1 Corinthians 14:2.
Speaks in mysteries...1 Corinthians 14:2.
For spiritual edification...1 Corinthians 14:4.
Build up yourself...Jude 20.
Pray for the unknown--don't know what or how to pray in any
Produces rest in our Souls...Isaiah 28:11-12.
Out of your belly shall flow the river of Life...John 7:37-38.
People often ask me why tongues is a common manifestation of
baptism in the Holy Spirit. I tell them that if God is going to rule
us, He must certainly rule our tongues; it is our most unruly
member. Just as we grab a bit to control a horse, God takes hold of
our tongue to assert His control of us.
Another reason He gives the gift of tongues first is to enable us
to build our faith for the appropriation of other spiritual
gifts...How are we to appropriate these gifts? Martin Luther tells
us, "Faith is the arm that reaches out to take the gift God offers."
But our arm of faith is weak and short. So God's first gift is the
only one that edifies the user. With it, we can build up our arm of
faith to appropriate other gifts we may need. That's why when
someone with a great need comes to me, I find myself instinctively
praying in tongues.
Because tongues, above the other gifts, is a worship gift, it
helps us fulfill our primary reason for being: to glorify God and
Folks always ask me, "Do I have to speak in tongues to receive the
baptism in the Holy Spirit?" I give them evangelist David
Wilkerson's answer: "You don't have to. You get to. It's part of the
How do I speak in tongues?
Instead of telling people to ask for the gift of tongues, I urge
them, with the words of the apostle Paul, to "stir up the gift of
God which is in you" (2 Timothy 1:6).
1. You make the sound by furnishing the raw material. God helps
you with the utterance. He helps you shape the sound of your voice
into words. Acts 2:4 says, "And they were all filled with the Holy
Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave
2. Don't speak words your mind understands. As long as you do,
your mind will remain in control.
3. Don't listen to yourself. Can you imagine a little child
learning to talk? Does he say, "Ma-ma-ma-ma," and then stop with: "I
can't say that. That's not a language?" No, he just hugs his daddy's
neck and prattles away.
