Listening not talking

God has no use for the prayers of the people who won't listen to him.
Prov. 28: 9

Prayer is less about talking, and more about listening.
Prayer is looking: what are the signs of God in my life?
Prayer is listening: what does God say to me through others, through my circumstances, through the voice in my heart?
Prayer is wondering and pondering: what is God up to in my life and the life of the world?
Prayer is about letting go:  how do I release my grip on my circumstances and find my center in God?
