14:14 If I pray in an unknown tongue - The apostle, as he did at #1Cor 14:6|, transfers it to himself. My spirit prayeth - By the power of the Spirit I understand the words myself. But my understanding is unfruitful - The knowledge I have is no benefit to others.

This scripture means a lot as I also pray and worship in tongues. Sometimes when I am in deep prayer of worship, it is hard to continue in my own language as this language comes from heaven, it is from the Holy Spirit.
