“Tongues”?

A divinely granted gift or talent identified by ecstatic, usually unintelligible speech.

For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God. Indeed, no one understands him; he utters mysteries with his spirit. But everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort. He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church.

In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul mentions tongues and prophecy along with other gifts, and affirms that Christians do not all receive the same gifts (12:29-30). But in 1 Corinthians 14:4 Paul says, “Now I want you all to speak in tongues, but even more to prophesy”.

Every believer does not receive the gift of tongues.

What does Jesus say about speaking in tongues?

He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy. He who prophesies is greater than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may be edified.

And we pray:

Father LORD, I am wholly Yours. Your will be done in my life, Amen. Today and always use me, mold me into Your will for me, Amen.
