Prayer Quest: Speak to Me

Prayer quest: Speak Lord, I’m listening

June 27, 2021

Make me bold

Change my heart

Search my heart

Send me

John 17:3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 

Ps. 42:1-2 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?

1 Samuel 3:8-11 Then Eli realized that the Lord was calling the boy. So Eli told Samuel, “Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, ‘Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place. The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.” And the Lord said to Samuel: “See, I am about to do something in Israel that will make the ears of everyone who hears about it tingle.

Speak Lord, your servant is listening

Reasons why we think we don’t hear God?

Wrong Expectation #1 We expect an audible voice

Nehemiah 2:12 I set out during the night with a few others. I had not told anyone what my God had put in my heart to do for Jerusalem.

Nehemiah 7:5 So my God put it into my heart to assemble the nobles, the officials and the common people for registration by families.

Pay attention to the thoughts of goodness

James 3:17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

Wrong expectation #2 Listening is only for direction

Be ready to listen to what God wants to talk about

Eph. 3:18-19 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Wrong expectation #3 only super spiritual heard God

Romans 8:14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.

Hearing God is a birth-rite for every child of the King

Speak Lord, your servant is listening
