Being close to God means communicating with him--telling him what is on our hearts in prayer and hearing and understanding what he is saying to us. It is this second half of our conversation with God that is so important but that can also be so difficult. How do we hear his voice?

It seems that no one has the answer, yet almost every Christian not only expects that they can hear from G-d,... Read more
