Its a mockery to pray unto God not-in-the Spirit because according to Isaiah 55
"8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."
Because in our right mind, we ask POSSIBILITIES, in the Spirit the Spirit tells us His High thoughts (Our IMPOSSIBILITIES), and we thrive.
Whenever the flesh is allowed to ask and speak to God, it seeks the things of this earth, the attainables, but when we pray in the Spirit (in tounges), we power to the deepest thoughts of God.
I don't know if u get this; we (ourselves) do not even need to understand exactly what we are asking; since it is a sigh of the Spirit, too deep for fleshly acceptance. Notice how Christ says of the Spirit:
John 14: 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
John 16: 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.
I take it that Christ also meant that even when He had already taught them how to pray, the Spirit was to come to perfect this! Thats why the disciples had to wait before working the miracles; they had it in their minds that mountains were movable, but it was the groanings of the Spirit that would arrive at this.
Imagine, if the human mind were to be told to ask for a mountain to move, it would wonder and say haaaah...so we forsake it in our prayers, rather allowing the Spirit to speak its mind and believing that what we get is Our Daily Bread. For Isaiah continues and says:
"10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Thus, these words are not vain words as some would assume, but words of God that will never come down and cause no effect.
Notice, when God created the heavens and the earth, had he taken a human perspective to effect just the light on the earth, the sun and the moon; it would have taken ages if not never. The human mind seeks understanding, and explanation, God used will bundled in faith. I challenge you to speak the Godly manner today. Address challenges the same way God said let there be light and there it was, let there be day and night and there it was. Let there be Spiritual presence in your life!

I do not expect you or them to say yes unto this; for the mountains are better believers and hearers of truth than human deity; for men seek understanding and explanation, but we act according to will in faith. Let God rule over that life, let changes manifest in your life; until we meet in heaven, let this be an exercise of Spiritual joy.
"12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off."
Praise unto God, in Jesus Christ's name, Amen.
