My Favorite Prayer

Famous prayers include:  the Lord’s Prayer, the Serenity Prayer, the Prayer of St. Francis, Jesus’ Prayer On The Cross, the Sinner’s Prayer, Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, and The Jesus Prayer.

Once the Tennessean asked me what is my favorite prayer.  This is what I said:  “Speaking in tongues, the supernatural prayer of the Holy Spirit through a human being.  This is a way of praying in the words of languages you don’t understand.  Yet those words flow from deep inside you.  as you pray this way there is an awesome awareness of God and His love and presence.  When I don’t know how to pray for somebody or for myself, I can pray in tongues and the Holy Spirit prays directly to God in a language my intellect can’t interfere with.”

Do you have a favorite prayer?

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @

    Ya, I agree with you Steve. There’s an incredible release of the Holy Spirit when we speak in tongues and connect with God. We speak the mysteries of heaven, revelation and even prophecy, its an incredible gift when done genuinely and by the Holy Spirit.
