God's is constantly speaking! Before we ever say a word of prayer or read a word in scripture, God is reaching out to us in grace, inviting us into life and love with him.
Things like ‘active listening’ help our human relationships; countless followers of Jesus have found the methods below helpful to grow in intimacy with God, *experience* him!
May you rest in Jesus more each day, learn to hear his voice, and find in him the restoration we all so greatly need!
The "Jesus Prayer" – in many of the Eastern churches (e.g. the Middle East, North Africa, Eastern Europe), the words of a blind beggar to Jesus (Mark 10:47) become a rich, simple prayer for any of us at any moment of the day: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner!”
Praying the Lord’s Prayer – a child can do this, but a lifetime will not exhaust its riches. Jesus himself taught us this prayer! Speak out to God one phrase at a time, and the pray along the lines suggested by that phrase. (read the Lord's Prayer), (Pastor James, for about 5 minutes, sharing and leading us through the Lord's Prayer), and a free sermon series by Tim Keller on the Lord's Prayer.
