“And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God.” Acts 10:31
It’s quick and easy to hear God’s voice through His Word, preaching etc., but He wants to communicate directly and personally with us.
How often do we talk throughout our whole prayer time, never really expecting an answer? Like a phone call, prayer is supposed to be two-way communication… we need to give God a chance to talk.
We may not all experience a vivid answer to prayer like Cornelius did, but if we will take time to listen, God will speak to us in our times of prayer.
Prayer: Lord, help me to build in periods of listening during my prayer time. I want to hear what You have to say specifically to me today.
