Pentecostals and Charismatics teach that praying in the Spirit is speaking in tongues. I disagree. Though tongues is not the subject of this video, I believe this video explains “praying in the Spirit.” The Holy Spirit is in the spirit of someone who is born again. He knows all things, both past, present and future. So when we pray in the Spirit, we are praying as we are led by Him to conform to the Lord’s will with the prayer. We don’t know His will in that particular situation but the Holy Spirit reveals it and our minds receive it. God has already planned it and all we are doing is agreeing and cooperating with the Lord’s will. Then when our prayer is fulfilled, we get a sense that God answered our prayer when what we sought was inspired by Him in the first place. What do we get out of praying for what God already intends? We increase in faith and trust in Him.
