Proverbs 6:20-22 (KJV); My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.
When you pray, it is important to hear God. Prayer is not about merely speaking to Him, it is mostly about LISTENING to Him.
How does one hear God in prayer?
If you want to learn to hear God in prayer, you must start with the most basic way to do this, which is by reading the Word during your moments of prayer and communion with Him.
Firstly, when you study the Word in your moments of prayer and communion, the Lord, by His Spirit, will expound the scriptures more deeply to you. In this expounding, you will receive greater revelation about how He thinks and what He purposes for your life.
Secondly, when you pray and study the Word, God will lead you to portions of scripture that apply directly to the issues that you are dealing with. He will give you answers through these verses.
So as you grow in hearing Him, start with the Bible.
As you exercise yourself in both praying and reading the Word, you will increasingly find that He will continue to speak to you even in those moments when you are not reading the Bible because His Word will acquaint you with His voice.
