Is it wrong to speak I tongues when I am alone, if there is no one there to intepret what Im speakin
I am a baptisted christian who speaks in tongues often when the spirit falls upon me...is it not right..if there is no one there to interpret what im saying..this occurs when I am alone praying and it definitely strengthen me whenever I do it...is this wrong?
If you're not disturbing the peace (nobody around) ... who cares? It's your personal time, use it as you wish as long as nobody else is bothered by your actions.
It is not wrong to speak in tongues when you are alone. You can ask the Lord to give you the interpretation after.
Speaking in tongues is a tandem gift, it needs to come with the interpretation by another person. The two gifts are discussed by Paul in the letters to the Corinthians to help people realize that every gift is equally important. If you speak in tongues in private, with no one there to interpret, you may be losing the message completely. God will send the right person at the right time to bring clarification to what is being said.
That being said, I would agree with others, if you are not bothering anyone else it is not a bad thing by definition. But if you want to call it truly speaking in tongues, you need someone else to interpret on their own, by their own gifts.
i believe that there might be a prayer language of tongues as well but i am not cmopletely sure
I only speak in tongues at work. My boss and coworkers think that I'm a babbling idiot. But at least they gave me my own office in one corner, away from everyone else....
you should be very concerned about this... You should talk to your personal physician about this.
Speaking in tongues when you praying is 100% correct I do it all the time. You dont need an interpretation because it is made for self edification, which means God intended your tongue to be for building you up in the Spirit, because it is your spirit that prays with the Holy Spirit.
Some confuse a prophesy with tongues and nterpretation.
Have a read here, I give a more in depth knowledge than what you will find here on the questions....

Speaking in tongues during private prayer can bring edification to God and is not wrong to do. If the Spirit falls upon you to do so, it cannot be wrong because God makes no mistakes. By the way, speaking in tongues (aka xenoglossia or glossolalia) was used by Roman Catholics in the Middle Ages. Many of their saints are affiliated with miracles associated with speaking in tongues. If you are interested, I have a Hub about women who spoke in tongues in the Middle Ages at http://ronnapennington.hubpages.com/hub … ddle-Ages.
