Communication with God. We have experienced that prayer works. Scripture tells us that God hears and responds to our prayers. Whether it is a yes or no or a later, he is listening. As we spend time in prayer our relationship with God grows stronger. God listens to us speak; but we also need to listen to Him as He speaks to us. There are many ways in which God speaks. One of the main ways he speaks to us is through the Bible, His word to us. But, he also speaks through dreams, other people, promptings, signs, and even through times of personal difficulty. If we learn to listen, we will hear him.
