The ability to speak in tongues is a gift from God, but many people are not using this gift as they should. This is because they are either afraid of it, or do not understand it. During times when we need to talk to God about something weighing on our hearts and minds but we do not have the words, the Holy Spirit intercedes and prays for us. This allows us to utter the perfect prayer without having to rely on our limited intellectual knowledge. When we pray, it is important to pray for everyone, not just the individuals we know or those who attend church. We can easily forget about the lost souls who do not know God and the people who have backslidden; praying in the Holy Spirit allows us to pray about things we do not even know about. As believers, speaking in tongues gives us a supernatural advantage the world does not have.
