Dynamic prayer

Wednesday 21 November 2012

“… take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in theĀ  Spirit…” Ephesians 6:17-18

Last night just as I was getting comfortable in bed, I began to see something in my mind’s eye. It was as if I was looking at the inside of my eyelids, really.

Against a dark screen I saw letters of the alphabet, some big, some little, some looking upside down and backwards. All were moving outward in a continuous stream away from me.

I thought to myself, it almost looks like tongues – not a known language, just jumbles of letters going out.

And the Lord began to speak without my asking Him anything.

It is tongues, prayers of many types and for many people, many situations. And commands also. Solutions for those people and situations, coming from My spirit through your spirit into the world.

What is light? He asked, then answered his own question immediately. Power.

Packets of energy. Work. Creation. Dynamics. Dynamos. Dynamite power. Dunamis.

Power moving outward in a continuous stream from my presence into the universe.

Started by My words.

What are words? Again He asked and answered. Containers. Containers of light, containers of creative ability, the workhorses of creation. Workhorses of My spirit and your spirit. Whether you understand the language or not, a prayer in tongues contains and transmits creative power.

With that the Lord ended the short lesson. But what a lesson! What a privilege He has given us!

Father, help me to cooperate with You more, allow you to generate your creative solutions as I pray in tongues.
