How to Hear God’s Voice during Christian Prayer

By Richard Wagner

Christian prayer is a method of speaking to God. To get the full benefit of Christian prayer, though, you can’t just speak, you must prepare yourself to listen, as well. The following tips can help you hear what God is saying to you:

  • Get the inside scoop on what God will say to you by reading his diary (the Bible).

  • Listen actively and attentively to all of his message.

  • Expect a whisper, not a yell.

  • Discern the tone of the voice. God’s tone is patient and calm. False voices are rushed and impulsive.

  • Look at the circumstances to see whether God is trying to get your attention.

  • Because listening is an art, not a science, always be humble and reliant on him to hear you.

  • Make listening your lifestyle, a byproduct of how you live your life.
