Take Time to Listen

Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life.—Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (NIV)

Many people pray to God and spend so much time asking and talking that they forget to make an effort to listen for His guiding voice. When you listen to the Lord, He will instruct and comfort you.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, thank You for being patient with me. I’m here. I want to listen to You.
