A few months ago, I’d watched Joseph’s sermon on the gift of the Holy Spirit and the gift of speaking in tongues. I have been baptized in the Holy Spirit for 30 years and using the prayer language all that time. However, when he shared that praying in tongues can take away fears and anxieties, I took special notice.
For some strange reason, I had gotten very fearful of driving in thunder and rainstorms. I would panic even to see one ahead on the road. I had always prayed out loud in the car when going through a bad storm but those prayers were me yelling at the top of my lungs at God most of the time.
After watching that sermon on tongues, I had the opportunity to try praying in tongues through a storm while driving. Instead of panicking, I began to pray in tongues out loud before I approached the storm and kept praying in tongues during the storm until I had driven out of it. All during that time, I was at total peace with no panic or anxiety.
I praise God that He brought me through this and I had learned to fix my eyes on Jesus as I prayed in tongues. No more fear of storms! Thanks so much for this teaching.
