Praying in Tongues before going to Bed to Secure Gifts from God
When King Solomon went to sleep, He had a dream. In the dream, God asked him what he wanted. King Solomon asked for wisdom and when he woke up, he had wisdom.
God can give us gifts in our dreams and the devil knows it. As a result, he targets to steal gifts that God gives us in our dreams.
Anytime you go to sleep, you have an opportunity to receive gifts from God. The gift can be something tangible or it can be information that you need.
God once showed me in a dream that a certain girl I was seeing had a secret boyfriend and he had gotten her pregnant. I woke up shocked and it was hard to believe. A month and a half later, it turned out to be true.
Was that information not a gift? I would have blindly ended up in a terrible situation but God had mercy on me.
What was the secret?
I used to pray in tongues before going to bed. The tongues kept my spirit alert when I was asleep and I could get information from God. Blessed be the name of the Lord!
There are many answers to our prayers that God gives to us in our dreams but because our spirits are not alert, the enemy steals them from us or we forget them by the time we wake up.
The habit of praying in tongues before going to bed secures all gifts and information that gives you when you are asleep.
When you don’t feel like Praying in Tongues before going to Bed
Let’s be honest; praying in tongues before going to bed is not easy. By the time you want to go to bed you are usually tired and in most cases everything gets postponed to the next day.
I have postponed praying in tongues to the next day many times because I was tired. But as you would expect, I didn’t like the outcome.
I got attacked in the dream and I had to wake up in the middle of the night to pray. There was a time I couldn’t sleep past 4am unless I had prayed in tongues before going to bed.
Devils would attack me with all manner of things; snakes, seductive women, dirty images etc. Sometimes I would wake up and pray a little but because I was tired I would go back to sleep almost immediately and the same thing would happen again.
In one of the dreams I remember a snake would come to sleep on my bed. I would push it off but it would climb up again. It bothered me until I woke up.
The snake was not biting me but only disturbing me. When I was at a lower spiritual level, snakes used to bite me.
What is the point here?
Push yourself to pray in tongues before going to bed even when you don’t feel like. If you don’t, you will pay the price later on in the night.
