“Prayer is not a monologue but a dialogue; God's voice is the most essential part. Listening to God's voice is the secret of the assurance that He will listen to mine."
          - Andrew Murray 
“Prayer at it's highest is a two-way conversation. And for me the most important part is listening to God's replies."
          - Frank C Laubach

Since God knows our future, our personalities, and our capacity to listen, He isn't ever going to say more to us than we can deal with at the moment.” 
          - Charles Stanley

“Wherever there are hearts waiting for the Voice of God, that Voice is to be heard.” 
          - G. Campbell Morgan

L2G: a definition

Listening to God is a deliberate action on the part of a believer to tune into the still small voice of God. It consists of intentionally seeking to quiet down on the inside so that you can fully focus on Jesus, binding all of the other voices and influences that interfere with hearing in the name and authority of Jesus Christ, while petitioning God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to come and be preeminent in the heart and mind. After these steps of preparation, the seeker specifically asks God to speak and then waits in silence for His communication.

Although God can communicate with us in many different ways, experience has shown that He most often speaks through the thoughts He brings into our minds or through pictures or images He brings. 60% to 65% of our population think in pictures or images (more women than men), so it’s not surprising that God would speak to these picturesque people in their own language.

Set aside 15 to 20 minutes to spend alone with God in a place where you won't be disturbed. Turn off your cell phone. Prepare your heart for a time of listening to God through the guidelines at the end of the video. Or, for detailed guidelines go to Post # 46
