Prayer is a doorway to the Father. Jesus spoke of this  and modeled it in His own life.  It was a foundation for  Him in communion with the Father. This was His alone  time with God where He was refreshed and received His  instructions of what the Father was saying and doing.


I pray in tongues a LOT.  Sometimes it is whispers with  punctuated loud breath (smile).  Sometimes it is fast  and loud in the car by myself.  Sometimes it is just my  normal voice with normal speaking tones as I am working  around the house.  In the middle of the night it is  whispers without hardly any breath at all.  When I walk  in parking lots and stores, I have learned how to  whisper under my breath in tongues without moving my  lips.  I am praying according to the will of God.


Matthew 6:6 But you, when you pray, enter into your  room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your  Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in  secret shall reward you openly.


Luke 6:12 And it came to pass in those days, that he  went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all  night in prayer to God.


Matthew 14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes  away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when  the evening was come, he was there alone.


Rom 8:26-27 NKJV

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For  we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but  the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with  groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches  the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is,  because He makes intercession for the saints according  to the will of God.



There are many kinds of prayers and intercessors.  There  are loud prayers, soft prayers, silent prayers,  whispered prayers, written prayers, singing prayers,  instrument prayers, tongues prayers, groaning and  yearning prayers, dancing prayers, banner prayers,  living prayers and even wishful thinking prayers. I am  sure there are even more kinds of prayers!!  I believe  that the Lord is so desperate for our prayers, that He  turns most anything into a prayer, including our heart’s  desires, when our hearts are turned toward Him.

Different styles of prayer can be likened to a teacher  having different teaching styles.  One style is similar to a salesman  who talks AT the students.   There’s a lecture with no pause for questions or  response.  It’s the same with prayer; this kind of  prayer may be quite fluent and say a lot, but there  isn’t a lot of pausing when the Lord can get a Word in  edgewise.  This is a one-way communication when the  person talks and the Lord listens.  One should not  expect to hear the Lord during this kind of prayer.   This is more for breaking through to be able to hear Him  afterwards.


Another kind of prayer is like a teacher who talks WITH  the students. Instead of standing at the blackboard,  the teacher is out among the students perhaps sharing a  bit, then pausing for the students to ask questions and  give a response.  It’s a two way process of  communication and learning.  And that process can be  fun.  It’s the same way with talking to the Lord, He  also wants to participate and give a response.


Sometimes when I am going to sleep I feel very  passionate about what I am praying.  I whisper my  prayers very intensely.  I may be praying through groans  and tears, and it is almost totally quiet.  Sometimes in  bed, I just think my prayers in hopes that the Lord will  respond to me back in same fashion.



Most often, I pray outside that quiet time.  If I have  something on my mind, I don’t wait for the “prayer  closet” opportunity to say it.  My prayers are more like  a conversation with Him.  It doesn’t matter where I am,  I just say it.  (I mostly pray in my mind, because I’m  not that much of a natural talker.)  Often when I say  something to Him, He will say some small Word or phrase  back to me that can open up an entire scope of His  answer.  The Lord is an expert at saying powerful and  simple punch lines that open all kinds of cross  references and common denominators to my mind.  




During the day, I may be speaking in tongues  consistently, especially if I feel a heavy burden upon  my soul or heart.  Prayer meetings where all gather to  speak in tongues is really powerful.  Those times are  always loud, powerful and dynamic when intercessors are  all praying in tongues and in agreement as they rotate  in taking the lead in English. The Lord’s Presence is  strong and powerful. When I am by myself, most of the  time I do not pray powerfully loud English prayers. I do  pray out loud in tongues and English and receive some  powerful breakthroughs, especially when I pray in the  car or exercising with the music!! But when I am at home  during the day, I pray mostly quiet prayers or silent  communion prayers.




Wayne and I always pray together  every night before we sleep.  We pray over our  loved ones and burdens of the day.  And often when  we are reading the news or something that concerns us,  we will pray together at that time.

Hi Sandy,


This morning I had to run out to do an errand. I found myself speaking much in tongues and Worship and singing before Him while driving.  I did this going and coming.  I noticed how extremely nice the cashiers were to me in both places that I went in.  In the second place, I went in a grocery store the man that bagged my items offered to bring them out for me!  I told him thanks, but I would do it.


On my way home I did the same thing, speak in tongues, worship and sing. When I pulled in my yard, on the side of my house where the light lines run I saw two blue birds fly right on them and sit. Just then a third one came and flew near them.  There were three blue birds sitting up there that had just flew there as I pulled in my yard!   


God bless you dear Sandy!
