Developing a Habit of Continuous Conversation with God is Hard at First, But Becomes Easy — A Quote by Brother Lawrence in “The Practice of the Presence of God”

In order to form a habit of conversing with GOD continually, and referring all we do to Him, we must at first apply to Him with some diligence: but that after a little care we should find His love inwardly excite us to it without any difficulty.

A Glance of the Lord Brings Peace — A Quote from François Fénelon in “The Seeking Heart”

Do everything with the awareness that you are acting before God and for His sake. At the sight of God’s majesty, calmness and well-being should fill your spirit. A word from the Lord stilled the raging sea, and a glance from Him to you, and from you to Him, will do the same for you.

Listening to God’s Voice is Part of Carrying His Glory — A Quote from Leanne Payne in “Listening Prayer”

“When Christ says to the Father that He has given us the glory that was given to Him, He speaks of the Father’s presence. The glory of God is the presence of God. Listening to God is an important part of the presence of God we are to practice… We must learn to open the eyes and ears of our hearts and recognize His voice.”

Faith Conversations are Good News ‘Wins’ with Postmoderns — A Quote by Brian McLaren in “A New Kind of Christian”

“‘[As for] evangelism in the postmodern world… I would say to stop counting conversions, because our whole approach to conversion is so… mechanistic and consumeristic and individualistic and controlling. Instead… count conversations, because conversation implies a real relationship, and if we make our goal to establish relationships and engage in authentic conversations, I know that conversions will happen. But if we keep trying to convert people, we’ll simply drive them away. They’re sick of our sales pitches and formulas.'”

Find God’s Presence Throughout Your Day — A Quote by Joyce Meyer in “Knowing God”

“Make regular time for God. Remember: you don’t have to go far to find Him. Just close your eyes for a moment, and in the quietness of you own heart you will discover Him. His Holy Spirit is always there waiting for you. Don’t leave Him alone without any attention from you. Make Him glad that He is living in you. Make Him feel welcome and at home. Make Him comfortable. Share everything with Him, because He has come to share everything with you.”

— Joyce Meyer in “Knowing God”, p 284
