This is mysteries that the devil does not understand, and unless God give the interpretation, the person praying in tongues too does not understand what he is saying. It is the Spirit that is praying through us anytime we are praying in tongues. 1Corinthians 14:2 “For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries”.
Praying in tongues is the most effective way of praying because it is the Holy Spirit that is helping you to pray through you. Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered”.
