“The third stage in the evolution of prayer is Listening to God. A child who has advanced from parroting words like “Momma” and “Da-da” to forming her own sentences has taken a great step. But she is still a child. The mark of a mature person is the ability to really listen.”
“The Lord will never tie of hearing my voice… God is always ready to be my captive audience. On the other hand, he wants share in my struggles and console men in these different times. He wants to challenge me to repent and to live the gospel more authentically. He wants to guide me through the decisions I make and to encourage me to live by those choices. He wants to celebrate my inner victories and to teach me how to have more.
Mostly, he just wants to say, “I love you.”
