Power For Private Prayer
"You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you!" Jesus makes clear to His disciples that they will need His power before they can effectively launch out as witnesses for Him. That power is the Holy Spirit's assistance beyond ourselves, manifesting in spiritual language.
The apostle Paul states, "I will pray with the Spirit and I will pray with the understanding." Both are important. Praying with the understanding involves our ability to articulate the things on our mind as well as we can, while speaking in tongues enables prayer that transcends our capacity in our native language. That enablement beyond ourselves is the value of spiritual language.
