Month of Prayer: Listening Prayer

January 12, 2020

As we move into this month of prayer, Josh shares about one of his favorite prayer practices: listening prayer. We need to hear the voice of God, and that starts with being with Jesus. If we're honest, we battle the critical and condemning voices in our head, and prayer offers the chance to commune with Jesus for God's voice to speak to our spirit. God's voice doesn't sound like our critical voice, because God's voice is action. It creates, begins things, shakes created things, is gentle, names, identifies, encourages, loves, and tells us who Jesus is. The worship journey for this week: "Which voices do we listen to?" Psalm 29; Jeremiah 23:29; Matthew 3:13-17; 1 Kings 19:12; 1 Corinthians 2:9-16. 

Josh mentioned a website from John Mark Comer that may be helpful as we journey deeper into prayer this month: practicingtheway.org/.
