Most of us are used to being wordy in our prayers. We speak to God in prayer; we don't listen to God. But Christian spirituality has a deep history and tradition of prayer as a form of listening to God.
In this episode, Steven and I discuss how prayer is a way to listen to God, our "go to" forms of prayer, and how a person can best begin to develop a prayer habit.
How do we know what God is saying? If discipleship is about doing what we hear God say, then how do we know what God is saying?
For Christians, the most trustworthy and reliable source for hearing God's word is his word, the Bible. But for many, the Bible is a difficult, unwieldy, hard-to-manage and hard-to-understand book. It shouldn't be this way, though -- and we believe that God has given us his word so that we will be drawn into his life. We believe that God desires to speak to us through his word, and that we can develop sensitivity to hear what he is saying.
Join us for this conversation, where we discuss four ways of listening to God in scripture so that we can not only hear what God says, but also do what he says.
