keep calm & listen to God

Excerpt from Dr. Weber’s Blog Learning to Listen to God’s Voice of Love: Second Week of Lent

Speaking + Listening + Waiting = Prayer     Margaret Feinberg

Margaret Feinberg

1.           Prayer is continual conversation with God

There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God.     Brother Lawrence

Prayer is not monologue, but dialogue; God’s voice is its most essential part. Listening to God’s voice is the secret of the assurance that

He will listen to mine.    Andrew Murray

Prayer at its highest is a two-way conversation – and for me the most important part is listening to God’s replies.    Frank C. Laubach

2.          Spiritual conversation includes listening

The trouble with nearly everybody who prays is that he says ‘Amen’ and runs away before God has a chance to reply. Listening to God is far more important than giving Him our ideas.   Frank Laubach

Often times God wants us to sit before Him in quietness. He doesn’t want us to do all the talking. As Isaiah 30:15 says:

In quiet and confidence will be your strength.   Charles Stanley
