John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

What to do if a tongue prayer repeats the same word?

Recommended Posts

What if when I start to pray in tongues I start to repeat the same word: "Tealesy, tealesy, tealesy, tealesy, tealesy"?

 

Should I seek a more diverse prayer?

 

(Mt. 6:7) "In praying, don’t use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking."

Hi Porton, I don't talk much a usually get involved in discussions about praying in Tongues because it is such a controversial topic, but this time, I'll try to help. I can and do pray in Tongues, but not often. There was a time when I thought we were supposed to try to make that happen, but any more, if I do I do, if I don't, that's OK too. I guess I'd suggest you just pray in English (assuming that's your normal language), and, of course, ask the Lord about all this. But I really think it's beneficial to pray in your own language, thinking about what prayer should be and why,

Hello There. Peace of Christ...Repetition is a no no in Spiritual Judaism a.k.a Christianity it is accepted and practised in christendom a.k.a the catholic church and her daughters the protestant denominations, speaking in tongues is of lucifer, of a false jesus, not of the Jesus of the Holy Scriptures...babling, mumbling an uttering unknown words is a no, no...Imagine your wife or kids or friends doing that to you?!!!! Brother James a.k..a Mr. Bojangles

there is a letter to Corinthians

Here is what it says about speaking in tongues.

 

If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn, and let someone interpret. But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silent in church and speak to himself and to God.

1 Corinthians 14:27-28

I am a firm believer in the promise of Jesus to send us a helper,who is the Holy spirit.Speaking in tongues is one of the tell tale signs that a person has received that wonderful promise.On noting that you keep repeating the same word,it could be a sign that one is still in the very preliminary stages of receiving the gift e.g like when a child is learning how to walk or one could also ask for the assured help of the Holy spirit.In faith and hope a turn around is assured.As one walks with the Holy spirit of God,respecting him and in purity,he may experience diversity of tongues as a manifestation of a balanced relationship with the Holy spirit.

The subject of "Speaking in Tongues" is so vastly misunderstood and marginalized at the same time. We have the first century apostolic witness and example, not to mention the apostle Paul's own word

of instruction (under the unction an inspiration of the Holy Spirit), that should be seriously considered. Be careful not to sensationalize what Holy Spirit will speak and do powerfully in and through the

collective body and the individual that everyone will have no doubt as to God's working.

Speaking in tongues in the Bible regards speaking and understanding languages unknown to the person(s).

I never spoke in tongues in the way you are referring to (I never spoke in tongues at all) but I do know that some words in worship were repeated.

 

"Amen" twice in Nehemiah 8:6.

"Holy" thrice in Revelation 4:8.

 

Perhaps there are others but I don't how they would relate to what you have been saying.
