Sometimes we need conversation starters with God. Like a divine ice-breaker. Often our prayers are very one-sided with us asking for a bunch of stuff and then getting mad at God when He doesn't give it all to us. I have enjoyed some incredible times of "listening prayer" armed with only these three questions, 30 minutes of silence, and a pen and notebook. Ask the question and then listen for what He says, listen to how He prompts you, write everything down and sort through it later.
- What is the next step in developing my character?
- What is the next step in my family?
- What is the next step in my personal ministry?
