Tongues, interpretations and prayers
I went for the communication class yesterday taught by Robert Fergusson. He had us praying in tongues for a few minutes. Then he wanted us to pray again, this time interpret the tongues out loud. I always knew that if you keep praying in tongues for like 15 minutes then you'd feel a sense of breaking through. But tongues and interpretation all the time? This is kind of new.
On the way driving home I practiced in the car. I spoke a few minutes tongue, then without going through my mind I tried to pray out loud in a language I know. It was amazing. I was actually prophesying to myself! There were a few things revealed to me about myself that I didn't quite understand before. I tried to pray for others, again, tongues first, then followed by interpretation without going too much through the mind, quite amazing.
Last Friday night as I went for the prophetic school again, we had quite a bit of stretch. I'm quite comfortable now praying one to one, think for a couple minutes, then prophesy or speak out visions. But last week the leader had us in lines, and we were to prophesy from one person straight to another without giving us any time in between to think or to pray. As soon as we finished one person, we were to head on to another person and start speaking out prophesies. She didn't want us to think. She didn't want the prophesy to go through mind. Most of us felt a bit stretching, and we screamed as we went on practicing, but it was quite fun.
I suddenly realized that this is another level to step up. To pray without thinking first how to pray, what to say, and just pray like prophesying. And to prophesy without the mind getting in to ponder and to decide, just let the spirit freely flow out. Quite exciting hay!
I never realized that tongues can be interpreted all the time. I never attempted to do so. Only very occasionally now and then. And then a lot of the time I do speak in tongues, and there's not too much difference with just making a whole lot of bubbling noises. But tongues with interpretation, that's definitely edifying....Actually mind blowing at the moment!
