A Spiritual Language (John Wimber)

Studying through 1 Corinthians 14, you’ll discover that praying in the Spirit is a way of communicating and edifying yourself in an intimate connection with God. Scripture says, “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests” (Ephesians 6:18a).

A Spiritual Language

“Studying through 1 Corinthians 14, you’ll discover that praying in the Spirit is a way of communicating and edifying yourself in an intimate connection with God. Scripture says, “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests” (Ephesians 6:18a). Paul, here, is saying that we should pray in a spiritual language as well as pray under the anointing and the initiation of the Holy Spirit.”
