A Suggested First Step in Learning to Hear God’s Voice — A Quote by Richard Foster in “Sanctuary of the Soul”

“How do I get started [in learning to listen to God in meditative prayer] if I have never done this before? I suggest you begin with one verse from the Bible. Say, Psalm 23:1: ‘The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.’ Read it over prayerfully two or three times and then wait quietly, listening for anything the Lord may want to teach you or any experience God may desire to give you. It is quite straightforward, really. We are simply learning to develop a conversational relationship with talking with God and God talking with us.”
