QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS WITH PASTOR CHRIS

What's the difference between praying in the spirit and praying with the spirit?

Question:

Tony from <b>NIGERIA</b> asks: <br />Warm greetings sir. What's the difference between praying in the spirit and praying with the spirit?

Pastor Chris Answers:

<b>Pastor Lanre proffers:</b><br /> Thank you so much sir. Well, praying ‘with’ the spirit clearly is praying in tongues with the spirit. But when you say praying ‘in’ the spirit, it has to do with the consciousness of the spirit and in fact it doesn’t have to do with speaking in tongues at all! You could be speaking in a language that is known, uttering words of the spirit, you can sing in the spirit. So, that consciousness of being in the spirit is what praying ‘in’ the spirit is all about. But praying ‘with’ the spirit usually just refers to praying in tongues. <br /><br /> <b>Pastor Chris answers:</b><br /> Very important! I hope you got that. Praying ‘with’ the spirit as different from praying ‘in’ the spirit Praying ‘in’ the spirit is a more general terminology while praying ‘with’ the spirit means that you are praying from your human spirit and that is usually in tongues.

Praise the Lord! What are other "secrets"/principles to prosperity even if one has been faithfully paying their tithes for years (even more then 10% at times) and sow seeds into peoples lives (giving) and yet they do not see financial growth? God bless you all in Christ Jesus! Sincerely Sister Barbara from New Jersey, USA

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PASTOR , THE DICTIONARY DID NOT CREATED THE WORD THAT I can qualify you but you are a gift to us; a precious Gift. The first time I saw you was this year in Ghana and you say that after this meeting things willl be happening in 10 year in our life. It will happen this year and even my familly who was laughing at me because I travelled from CONGO brazaville just for that meeting in Accra, they now believed that you are a man of God because the miracle has happened this year in my life. Everybody are just praising God when they look at me. I was in the last place in my company but after the meeting now, I am in the second place.

Thank you Pastor Sir

Swile from Abuja, Nigeria

Dear Pastor, Thank you for the ministry of the word at work in your life. Thank you for giving me a brand new life again. In June 2016, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis and Systemic Lupus erythematosus, which are auto immune diseases that causes the body to attack itself. I had very painful joints all over my body. I had to like on medication daily, for the next 6 months, otherwise I would be unable to work or do anything. During the second day of the Partners Conference, you asked us to speak in tongues for 10 minutes. 10 minutes that will change destinies. After the prayers I started screaming in excitement, I knew I was free. Since that day, I have not felt any pain and have no need to take the pills again. I have not been able to stop telling people what God has done for me. I love you Pastor, Thank you. Sis Swile from Abuja, Nigeria

Dear Pastor Chris, I remember when I was in Lagos in 1998 and I stumble on the Man of God through atmosphere of miracle on television. Since that time I have not recover, My heart has glue to you. There is something that Holy Spirit always communicated to me through you. Your embodiment, gestures, manner of dressing, SIMPLICITY, pleasantness in answering rude questions, spirituality in handling of matters, radiating splendour of PEACE of CHRIST,excellence,giving validation to the WORD of TRUTH BY THE HOLY SPIRIT throuh miracles. THIS IS CHRISTIANITY ! There is something at work inside you and I know I shall be a partaker of this divine grace of God in you even as I comimmited myself to the instructions. God bless you sir.

I became born again at the NOB 2016(SA). Before the NOB Ive tried so many things out and connections from the people in higher positions hoping they assist in helping me find a job but none of plans were successful. After being born again i could feel that i was different from the person i used to be such that i had peace from within though i was still unemployed. I spent most the time studying the Scripture, meditating on it, praying in spirit and i started seeing visions. Four months later i was invited for an interview and strangely enough i had a vision about that similar company, I got the permanent job. God is wonderful i must say.
