THE SPOKEN WORD
Listening For The Voice Of God
Is it possible to have a conversation with the creator of the universe?
Of course it is, and it's called prayer.
It's not spooky, it's not weird, and above all it's not hard. It's merely talking with your heavenly Father.
In the Bible (John 20:17) Jesus says to Mary Magdalene... "Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God".
Both our Father and our God,.. isn't that good to know?
I came across some good information, read part of it here:
"Prayer is not some mystical process whereby we call out to some force. Nor is it a kind of power with which we create things or speak them into existence, ordering God around like some bell-hop who art in Heaven.
Prayer is communicating with and hearing from God.
True prayer is what happens when our will is aligned with the will of God, and we pray accordingly. Prayer is our connection to Heaven and Heaven's connection to us—that is why you should always keep the lines open"!
Those two paragraphs were written by Pastor Greg Laurie. There are some awesome things this man of God wrote regarding prayer. For more of this plain talk follow this link - What is Prayer?
