The process may look something like the following but can vary as the Holy Spirit leads.
For example you may sense you are to pray about your church.
- Worship-You may choose to worship for 10 to 30 minutes.
- Sometimes I start out worshiping and other times I just wait in his presence.
- I try not to get in rut.
- The main thing is to hear his voice.
- Ask God to speak to you/others if you are praying with others.
- What do you want to show me/us about this situation?
- What do you want to teach me/us about this situation?
- How should me/us pray?
- What do you want to do in and through this situation?
- Spend some quiet time waiting on the Lord.
- It’s not so much how long you spend in waiting but listening for his voice.
- Jot down any specific words, phrases or Scripture you sense he is speaking to you.
- If in a group come back together—
- Make a list of the words and Scripture you received from the Holy Spirit.
- Wait some more and listen to hear if he is adding anything else— again it could be a long time or short.
- Write down anything else you receive as you stay focused on hearing his voice.
- Commit to pray until God fulfills what he said he would do.
Spirit led prayer is important to the outcome— because we are asking God what and how he wants us to pray.
When we are certain of hearing his voice we can pray until we see the results.
John 15:7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
“The voice of the Lord is like a whisper at times. That’s why being still is important to prophecy. In the peace of God, revelation flows.” – Graham Cooke
