Why the Enemy Hates It When You Pray in Tongues

Speaking in tongues is like being a sniper to the enemy. (Photo by Zhang H on Unsplash)

Praying in tongues is a manifestation of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 12:7-11). It is a gift from God, enabling us in our prayer lives.

When we pray in tongues, we speak mysteries to God and build up our spirits. Sounds really good to me! Why wouldn't I want to do this?

"For he who speaks in an unknown tongue does not speak to men, but to God. For no one understands him, although in the spirit, he speaks mysteries. But he who prophesies speaks to men for their edification and exhortation and comfort. He who speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. I desire that you all speak in tongues" (1 Cor. 14:2-5a).

Here's how you can receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the gift of speaking in tongues.

From the Journal of Malachi Talabi

Tongues are like sniper guns. The enemy hates tongues because they are like sniper guns.

The picture I have given you isn't about shooting devils or demons. it's about accuracy in prayer.

There is no better way to pray than to take things to God in prayer via tongues. The accuracy of tongues is profound; you hit the spot every time.

Tongues are like sniper guns.

Note from Malachi: As I researched sniper guns, I realized that a lot of snipers are a long distance from their target. This is like we are when we pray in tongues: we may not know it, but we can pray accurately about things way in the distance. I am talking years and even decades away.
