Private Prayer Lanuage In Bible

I've always been taught that if a teaching or manifestation wouldn't stand up to the scrutiny of scripture that it is not of God and must be rejected. What about holy laughing and private prayer language? Where is the black and white scripture and our example?

Dannyboy: There isn't any & anyone who tries to justify it outside the pale of biblical orthodoxy is deceived, & in grievous error.

This may shock a lot of people, but when you are a prophet God can give messages you won't find in the Bible. Go ahead and laugh in the holy spirit, I do it all the time [what fun]. I never run to the word of God to check it all out. I do not how much time left for such unbelief. Praying: you pray, God just wants you to pray. Is that in the Bible? I don't know.

The other part of your question has been dealt with so many times on here it would be redundant to go over it again.

"He who sits in the heavens shall laugh at those who hold Him in derision."

Let me just say this: if He who sits in the heavens laughs, then it is surely a holy laugh. And the good news is that we have been raised and seated together with Him. I know personally that anytime Father has spoken to me in such a way that any carnal aspect of my mind is subdued and my mind renewed, I have laughed with Him.

Shira--Yes, Paul could speak more than one language. But in I Cor 14:16 he's obviously talking about something other than learned languages.

Paul could speak a lot of different languages.

#3--Yes, sometimes a prayer "in the spirit", that is, in a "prayer language" is sung instead of spoken.
I Cor 14:16 Otherwise, if you bless in the spirit only, how will one who fills the place of the ungifted say "Amen" to the giving of thanks since he does not know what you are saying? For you are giving thanks well enough, but the other person is not edified. I thank God I speak in tongues more than you all.

Again this is private use of tongues in praise.

#2--I Cor 14:2 For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries.
(This is a private prayer language, spoken from man to God)
I Cor 14:14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. What is the outcome then? I will pray with the spirit and I will pray with the mind also. I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the mind also.

#1--I guess if one knows the "joy of the Lord",
"holy laughter" should be expected at times. (but not necessarily introduced by some Evangelist).a "private prayer language" is a gift of tongues different from that used in a church service if Paul's instructions are followed (I Cor 14:27-28) It may take several posts but I will quote some Scripture regarding this.

1 Cor. 13:1 --I speak with the tongues of men or of angels--. This shows that we should have the ability to speak that way,and in speaking in that manner we can have a prayer language that can't be understood, unless a person knows that one of over 6000 earthly languages,they can't say it isn't, or the tongues of angels. I agree with Linda 6563,the Bible tells ,a merry heart doeth good like a medicine,laughter a form of healing for the soul/spirit and even body.
