Praying in Tongues The Supernatural at Work in Your Life Today

In one of the churches in the movement I am part of, a divine visitation took place one Sunday morning. The heavens broke open and angelic voices were heard filling the room where the people were worshiping. It was fearful. I remember hearing the tape, and just thanking God for allowing us to hear a glimpse of Heaven.
The Holy Spirit spoke within me, and said, "Every time you speak in tongues, you hear Heaven."
It is a heavenly language.
When Paul says in 1 Corinthians 14:2 that we speak to God when we pray in an unknown tongue, that must mean we are speaking God's language. I am not saying that one must speak in other tongues to be heard or understood. Far from it. But there is no question that the Scriptural gift as outlined by Jesus Himself, Paul and others, is given to aid our fellowship with God. Furthermore, it is available for all believers, not a select few.
I was in Italy one time, staying with an Italian family. I don't speak a word of Italian, so it was very hard to converse. Conversation was limited, and as a result the depth of our communion and relationship together was hindered. Language (or lack of it) was the barrier.
Regarding our relationship with Him, God sorted this problem out when He gave tongues to believers. Whereas before we were limited by our natural speech, we now have a spiritual language. God is a Spirit (John 4:24). We need to speak spirit with Him, as well as in our known natural language or languages. Just as you must speak Italian to an Italian, Russian to a Russian and Spanish to someone from Spain, so we must speak spirit to the Spirit.
Praying in Tongues and Speaking in Tongues is a powerful and supernatural way to communicate with God.
