Listening Prayer

What is prayer? The most basic definition of prayer is “talking to God.” The Bible shows us many examples of people who took the time to talk to God—Moses, Elijah, David, Ruth, the prophets, even Jesus himself. When we examine their experiences and teachings on prayer, we learn that prayer is not a monologue. For example, when Moses talked to God, he did not simply do all the talking; God was not just a passive listener. A dialog, a conversation between Moses and God, took place.[1] The same is true for the many illustrations of prayer in Scripture. Therefore, a more accurate definition of prayer is “a conversation with God.”
