Praying in Tongues is one of the 12 prayer types I cover in “Made To Pray.” It’s also probably the most controversial.
When I was writing the book, I was told by an industry expert that publishers and bookstores would reject it because tongues was in it. Some have and some will. But I decided to include tongues anyway because I believe it’s as valid a prayer type as say, praise or petition. No one would dream of removing those.
Plus the Apostle Paul wrote, “I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you” (1 Corinthians 14:18). If it was good enough for Paul, shouldn’t it be good enough for us?
There’s a lot of confusion about tongues.
One of the most popular articles on my website is “Ten Myths About Speaking in Tongues.” Web searches are done almost daily on the topic. When I’ve spoken on the subject of tongues in churches, there’s a wave of bewilderment when I say there are three types of tongues in the New Testament.
Well, we can’t cover everything about tongues, but here’s a start.
In this video interview, I talk with Becky Spencer about how praying in tongues is helping her in the tragic loss of her grandson, Honor.
We cover these questions:
- How is praying in tongues helping you in this challenging season?
- When did you start praying in tongues?
- Why do you think this type of prayer is so controversial?
If you’d like to learn more about tongues, I encourage you to order Made To Pray.
