But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. (John 14:26 NKJV)
The Holy Spirit takes you beyond hearing with your ears and helps you listen with your heart.
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. (I Corinthians 6:19, 20 NKJV)

So as you seek The Lord for your guidance and direction, the Holy Spirit will help you pray out the mysteries of God’s plan for your life as you pray in other tongues. I personally found out that praying in tongues is the best way to get my mind and body quiet, so I can hear what my spirit is saying.
