Sunday Prayers: Hear His Voice

John 5:25
Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.

This is one prayer that I most certainly do each and every morning on my way to the church.  This is a prayer for parents, children, and everyone that enters the building each Sunday morning.  I know that there will be a lot of voices heard at church, from teachers, to preachers, to greeters, and friends they will have their ears filled with voice after voice after voice.  My prayer is that at least one person will be able to discern the voice of God at some point throughout the morning.

I pray that God’s voice penetrates the heart, soul, and mind of at least one person.  I pray that one person in the audience and in the crowd is able to easily discern God’s voice speaking to them.  I pray that it comes through the words of a close friend, or a new friend.  I pray that His voice is heard during a time of worship and solitude.  I pray that as God’s Word is taught with power, authority, and conviction that God’s Voice is heard clearly in their spiritual ears.

I believe that it happens to more than one person each week, but I firmly believe that if God just spoke to one person each weekend…that their world would be changed forever.  Just one person is all it could take.

This is part of the discussion started  HERE, and continues the Sunday Morning Prayer Series.
