Lord, I am so grateful for this reminder that You are actively speaking to me. Please forgive my insensitivity and preoccupation with other matters—allowing barriers to arise that obscure and drown out Your voice.
For my part, I want to get rid of those obstacles today. With this prayer, I am actively opening my ears and my heart to You, dear Jesus, and to all You want to say to me. Please speak to me, Lord—for your servant is listening.
I am starting the process today to hear You better—to listen more carefully and intently. Thank You for the promises in Your Word about all the benefits of hearing You. I am so grateful that in return for my improved listening, You have pledged to hear me when I call, and to listen when I cry out to You.
Today, I am taking the first step to refresh my communication with You, Lord. This is my declaration: from this point onward, I will be actively listening to hear and obey Your voice. Amen.
