Immortality! Death Abolished! All the works of the devil and all the causes of sin in man undone taken away and healed! Let us have no place for all that diverts us from God's purpose.

    Julie. Ask the Lord to baptize you with the Holy Spirit and to give you a prayer language. When He does use it daily. Paul said that when you pray in the Spirit, or in tongues, you spirit prays directly to God in mysteries that only God understands. It is the most effective way to pray because the Spirit knows what to pray for always. I have experience this many times and seen many results.
