Could it be that we are missing an important link when we pray and walk away instead of praying and listening for His voice?
John 10 declares; My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
How can you tell if you are His sheep? If you hear His voice. Not if you pray daily, but if you hear His voice.
Prayer is a dialogue. It is a conversation between two people, not a speech by one person.
Don’t allow your prayer life to become a monologue, make sure it remains a dialogue between you and God. Call upon Him…He will answer you, just as the word of God says.
Take time to listen for His voice. Take time to listen for His answer to your prayer. Gods voice in response to your prayer is the most important part…listen for His response.
