MIND DRIFTS WHEN PRAYING ADDRESSED - PT.2

'For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.' - 1 Corinthians 14 vs 1

Greetings dearly beloved of God in Christ. If you have not read the first part of this teaching, you will not know where this teaching is coming from, and hence, you will not have a wholistic understanding of the teaching generally. So I advice that you proceed immediately to the first part of this teaching and read, and understand; then come back here and continue learning on this subject. Click here to read the first part of this teaching.

Okay. So having read the first part of this teaching, we have being able to see how to bring our minds to focus when we pray. Now, why is it important that our minds are focused when we pray?

  1. That's an expression of commitment to the prayer.
  2. By being focused in mind when you pray, you show reverence to the One you're praying to. Imagine talking to the president of your nation, and at the same time replying a whatsapp message! That would be unacceptable! You wouldn't even dare it.
  3. You are quick to sense the things that the Spirit of God is bringing into your understanding. Your receptiveness to God is switched on when your mind is at a state of focus when you pray.

So you see, these are the benefits of being focused in your mind when you pray. Nevertheless, the Spirit of God wants you to know that, even when your mind is distracted with thoughts as you pray, God is still hearing you. Let's take a look at our opening Bible passage;

'For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.' - 1 Corinthians 14 vs 1 {KJV}

  • He that speaks in an unknown tongue speaks to God

This is very key! Remember, God's word is final authority! - Selah. The Bible tells us clearly that when we speak in tongues, we speak to God. The distractions of our minds cannot change this! Never! You may be speaking in tongues and at the same time thinking about a project you are planning of executing, and at the same time, you're thinking about your children's school fee, and at the same time you're thinking of your girl friend that left you; whatsoever the distraction in your mind may be as you speak in tongues, it does not change the truth that you are speaking to God. So long as you were still speaking in tongues (though your mind was lost in other thoughts), you were speaking to God. This is truth and fact, because the Bible said so. - Think about it

He that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh unto God - meaning, so long as you continue to speak in tongues, the distractions happening in your mind cannot deny the fact that you are yet speaking to God. Why is the Spirit of God telling you this at this time? it's so that you will not loose confidence in your prayer because of the many distractions that happened to you (in your mind) while you prayed. satan is crafty! he can introduce doubt into your mind from that happening, whereby you might begin to feel you wasted your time in that prayer because of the many unholy and ungodly thoughts your had up playing in your mind while you were praying, which can make you loose faith in your prayer; and the moment doubt sets in, answers are aborted. - Selah

'But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 
For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.' - James 1 vs 6 - 7 {KING JAMES VERSION}

  • Nothing wavering
  • Let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord

We can clearly see that to waver (to doubt) after you have prayed is to not receive any thing of the Lord.

Therefore dearly beloved, stand fast upon the truth, stand strong upon the the written word! When you speak in tongues, you speak to God! While it is excellent and proper to have your mind with you when you pray, nevertheless, so long as you are speaking in tongues, nothing is hindering those words from entering God's ears! Not even the distractions in your mind. The Bible says, He that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh unto God. If you ever spoke in tongues, God heard you. Put your faith on this truth! Be in peace. Amen.

God is with you.
