Benefits Of Praying In Tongues

Released October 3, 2023 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


Episode 167: Benefits of Praying in Tongues A concern often expressed by those who are skeptical of the gift of tongues is centered on what possible value there could be in praying in a language that you do not understand. More than once, I have been interrogated about whether or not it is good stewardship of my time to devote large portions of it to praying privately in tongues. For those who do not pray in tongues, I actually believe these types of concerns are valid. They have a legitimate right to ask. How could they possible perceive the benefit of praying in tongues when they have never embraced it as part of their Christianity? My real curiosity is whether or not they are asking the question to learn an answer…or just to make the point that they do not value the presumed gift of tongues. Today’s episode of Mavericks & Misfits contains some of my personal testimony of the benefit of tongues, plus some very clear Scriptures that reveal what happens when we pray in tongues.
