Looking unto Jesus in prayer is a blessed training. Prayer without listening is like going to a person, asking questions, and leaving without waiting for an answer.
We need some practice. We have prayed so much without listening that we do not always hear the answer immediately. Then we must wait upon the Lord. This waiting upon Him is a blessing in itself. Corrie ten Boom
....they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.....Isaiah 40:31
Lord, teach me to pray and teach me to listen and understand Your sometimes still, small voice.
