#7 of the 10 things God gives us on our discipleship journey to Christ Likeness 

God is always available to talk.

God tell us we can call on Him, talk to Him, anytime day or night on our journey to become like Jesus.

God tell us we can ask Him about anything and everything.

1 John 5:15 says when we ask God for something, He hears us.

In Psalms 91:15 God says: “Call on me and I will answer you”

Are you Listening?

Prayer is more than TAKING to God. Prayer is LISTENING to God too….

God is always speaking, teaching!

Talking and Asking is 1% of prayer! Listening is 99% of prayer!

In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Paul said He prayed all the time. He wasn’t always talking or asking. He was always listening. 

Paul was in continual communication and conversation with God.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Prayer is not giving God your wish list.

Praying is a two way conversation.

God already knows what you need
Matthew 6:8

You really really need is to listen to Him!
