I do try it but often, i end up stammering, not knowing how to pronounce some english words in my dialect. Some times even english cant express what i want to communicate. So i discovered a better way........ I pray in the Spirit

Our God is a wonderful God, He understands any language, and he doesn't restricts us to one language, we should go to Him with all simplicity and with Faith in our heart and He will answer us!
I pray though most times in English...i can hardly pray in Yoruba again!
God is good!

d only time i pray in english is wen i am praying wit some other pple who dont understand it, otherwise i prefer my dialet cos it is richer in communication.
Btw, its a shame for any1 who can't speak his/her dialet to a reasonable degree.
and least i forget,

I always feel the overwhelming power of God when I pray in igbo, When you pray in your local dialect you will feel like God has heard it very well than when you pray in English

There lies the key, if You cant think on ur local dialect u can neither pray in ur local dialect. Just like if u cant think in good English u neither can speak Good English.
