Listening Prayer

Luke 6:12-13
In those days he departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named apostles.

Before making the major decision of picking apostles…Jesus “spent the night in prayer to God.” He went off to the mountain…alone…and immersed Himself in the silence of prayer so He could “hear” God speak to Him. How often do you take time to sit in silence to simply “listen” to what God has to say to you? It is not easy at first and may seem like a “waste of time”…but with practice it will become life-changing.

Suggested song of the day– “Turn Off the Noise” on the Listen to Your Heart album.
