Matthew 11:28-29 - Jesus said that if you would just come to Him, you will receive rest. It doesn't even say you need to pray or ask for it.
When you pray in tongues, you communicate directly with God. That's how you can come to Jesus.

When Rev. Col Stringer woke up one morning and found the wall of his house knocked down, he went to pray in tongues, and God told him that the garbage man did it.
After pursuing the matter, he went to the company to check the garbage man's truck, and sure enough, the truck had the paint of his house wall on it, showing that it was indeed the garbage man that knocked down his wall!
That day, Rev. Col Stringer realized that he could access the wisdom of God by praying in tongues!
