God is looking for those who are willing to pay the price in prayer.

Tongues: Beyond The Upper Room | Kenneth Hagin


4/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐


I woke up a little past midnight. Again.

I finished Everything Good Will Come by Sefi Atta yesterday evening and I wanted to move on to something I’d love to read. I didn’t really like Everything Good Will Come. I had struggled with it for over a month so I wanted something I would enjoy from the word go.

I had considered reading Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice which is my go-to when my reading is down in the dumps. During the weekend however, I came across a review of Tongues: Beyond The Upper Room by Kenneth Hagin on My Glowing Scenes. It wasn’t so much the review as it was the author.

I love Kenneth Hagin although so far, I’ve just read The Art of Prayer and How You Can Be Led By The Spirit Of God. They were both fantastic and I’d definitely go back to them time and again when I need to. I also have Growing Up Spiritually high up on my To-Read List. I put Tongues on my short/immediate reading list and decided to get it.

So, this morning when I found myself up, in need of good reading material and a bit of a long way from sleep, I picked it. I’m happy to say it was a great decision. I really am excited about it. I haven’t gone very far because I eventually did go to sleep and I had to be at work this morning but I’ve been picking it up every chance I  get. I haven’t closed it either – that’s always a good sign.

I’d been struggling with reading my Bible which meant feeling somewhat off-kilter but in the short time since I began reading this, I started getting back on track.

Kenneth W. Hagin, in his Foreword, talked about how his father Kenneth E. Hagin learnt all that he knew and taught. He spoke of how he studied the Bible and other good books continuously and prayed for hours on end.

Like I said, I was inspired from the word go.

The Chronicles of Ess - Tongues Beyond The Upper Room

You can trust I’d try to write more about this but meanwhile, these are some things that have resonated with me so far.

Feel free to read the Glowing Scenes post for more insights while we await my subsequent posts.

Off to read,

Ess.
