Our aim in prayer meetings is to touch the Throne of God. We need God’s Spirit to lead and guide our prayers in whichever way He pleases.
Rom 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
Prayer can be soft and gentle with a lot of brokenness, excited with praises and making a joyful noise – praising God or just blessing Him in worship. Prayer can be heavy in anguish and travail because of a God-given burden or it can be loud and demonstrative, warring in the Spirit. It can be target praying for specific things or just speaking into the lives of one another, ministering to those in need.
We believe that the Bible has given us a clear vision and example of how God’s Spirit can move in prayer, so let us be sensitive to God’s Spirit, listen for His Heartbeat and be vulnerable before Him.
We believe in speaking in tongues as the Holy Ghost gives utterance. We believe the Holy Ghost wants to use our tongues in different ways. Speaking in tongues is a supernatural gift, for we cannot speak a foreign language without extensive study. However, when the fiery Tongues of the Holy Ghost came down upon the Disciples, the Spirit took control of their natural tongues, and they began to speak in other tongues or in a different language. Here are just a few ways the Spirit of God can use our tongues:
- Praise: Acts 2:11 and Acts 10:46
- Intercession: Romans 8:26, 27
- Travail: John 7:38, 39, Gal 5:17 and Romans 8:26
- Rebuke: Luke 10:19
- Messages: 1 Corinthians 14:4, 5
- Songs: Ephesians 5:18, 19
- Witnessing: 1 John 5:5, 6
Philippians 4:6-7 “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
