40-Day Guided Prayer Journey - Day 38
Jesus, help me listen before I speak. Amen.
THE prayer MODEL
(until the Spirit is finished)
An intentional method for responding to Holy Spirit woven into the dialogue and heart of prayer. Use the blank space below each question to chronicle your journey.
Go back to Step 1 and repeat the prayer. Repeat this process until you sense the Spirit’s release from this prayer.
New International Version (NIV)
6 Do not let your mouth lead you into sin. And do not protest to the temple messenger, “My vow was a mistake.” Why should God be angry at what you say and destroy the work of your hands?
13 To answer before listening—
that is folly and shame.
50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”
9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.
THE NEXT STEP in the journey
Practice the skill of reflective listening - Simply stating back to a person what you heard them say, not forgetting details.
