1 Corinthians 14:14-15 (KJV)
For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

Femi told his friend about how his spiritual life had grown since he got baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. His friend was excited about his spiritual growth, but was skeptical about the 'praying in tongues' part. His friend said if he prayed in tongues, he needed an interpreter. Femi tried to explain to his friend that since he was praying to God and not giving people a message from God, he didn't need an interpreter. But his friend partially convinced him that he wasn't praying correctly by praying in tongues the way he did.

Because of this conversation, Femi decided that he was going to try praying only in his understanding henceforth. The first day he tried praying this way, he ended up praying for only 15minutes instead of the one hour he normally spent. He felt so dry and empty in his spirit.

After trying this method for three weeks, he faced a challenge that required him to walk in great faith, but he found that he was now afraid of things he didn’t fear before. This was an indicator to him that his spirit was lean and lacking power. It became clear to him that his decision to no more pray in tongues was a manipulation of darkness to keep him spiritually weak and ineffective. God delivered him from that delusion.

Giving people a message in tongues is different from praying in tongues [to God]. The one needs an interpreter or it would be fruitless for the people, but the other does not need an interpreter because God understands what is being said.

Go into today remembering that praying in tongues is praying in the spirit. This builds you up and fills you with spiritual might and power (1 Cor 14:4, Jude 1:20).
