Goes hand in hand with the post I made a few minutes ago. Pray more AND listen.
And he said to me, “Son of man, listen carefully and take to heart all the words I speak to you.
Communicating with God is a two-way street. As we pray and cast ourselves before the throne of grace, we must remember to listen. Throughout the entire bible, we read story upon story of how God speaks to various people. Even more, remember that the Holy Spirit of God resides within us and is always on guard and poised to bring us a Word from the Lord. Listening serves two purposes, first off it shows God that you want to hear from Him. Second, it is a great tool to slow down our thoughts and not rush through prayer or other time we’ve committed to God alone.
