A good conversation generally consists of at least two people. Two people that are listening and responding. Two people that are engaged in the topic being discussed.

So why then, when it comes to our prayer life, do we often times have one sided conversations? Conversations that just consist of us making our requests known and usually little else?

How often do we watch for a response? Is it rare for us to quiet ourselves to listen to what God has to say on the matter?

Habakkuk had just finished talking to God. Afterwards he waited to hear what God had to say to him. The Lord answered.

Next time before you abruptly end your prayer time I encourage you to pause and listen for what The Lord has to say to you. Or get into the Word and see what He has already said on the matter.

Keep talking to Jesus about it. Keep listening for His response.

Habakkuk 2:1-2
