Does God Audibly Speak to Us?

Like me, you probably grew up being taught to listen for God’s voice as guidance to you in your life.

I however think we get the true answer to my opening question in Acts 2. Continue reading

One may see a verse such as 1 Thessalonians 5:17 which states, “pray without ceasing”, and think they should be praying as much as possible. Though if we look into other verses presented before us, perhaps we can get a better insight of how much prayer would seem desirable to God. But first, let’s see if we can dive deeper into the meaning of “praying without ceasing”. Continue reading
