Turn Prayer into a Dialogue

In the morning, Lord, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait expectantly.—Psalm 5:3 (NIV)

Prayer is a conversation: a give and take of talking and listening. If you find yourself praying one-sided prayers, think of the above verse and pray like King David. After you share your thoughts with God, wait and listen for His answer.

Heavenly Father, it’s Your turn to talk.
