I went to church today and my Pastor, Ben Barfield taught about life's toughest questions. He focused on prayer. Prayer is one of my all time favorite topics. I pray every day throughout the day, looking for opportunities to pray. Last week I spent time examining my prayer life and decided that I need to listen more.

So I am leaving room to hear from God in every prayer moment. But how can I pray without ceasing and listen to God at the same time? By considering the listening a part of the prayer. That is how important it is to listen. I call the listening part of my prayer meditation. This allows me to focus in on what God is saying to me.

I find it especially important to do this in the mornings when I first wake up and at nights before I go to sleep. This helps me to have more clarity.
