Some of the disciples who were with John before joining Jesus were taught methods of prayer to God by John the Baptist. So, when they saw Jesus praying continuously, He spoke in tongues and they too deserved it. You may ask how do you know? In Luke 11:1, Jesus was praying in a particular place, When He ceased [When something that is flowing suddenly stops, it is known as ceasing], the curious disciples did not understand the prayer that Jesus prayed, So they asked Him to teach them how to pray like Him (Luke 11:1). The same word 'cease' is used by Paul in the New Testament for stopping from continuously praying in tongues in 1 Corinthians 13:8 and 1 Thessalonians 5:17.
Impeccable Exhibit 1: “And taking the child by the hand he said to her, “Talitha cumi!” which means, “Little girl, I tell you to get up.” (Mark 5:41). I believe Jesus said "Talitha cumi" through the Spirit or in tongues. If this was normal Greek or Hebrew, why did they go to such lengths to tell us what it meant? Jesus, being filled with the Spirit without measure, surely also spoke to God in His heavenly language.
