SERMON BITES: We do not listen to Jesus in prayer

There is a common belief that prayer is a two-way form of communication.  However, there's no evidence in the Bible to substantiate the view that God speaks to us in prayer. Biblical prayer operates in one direction only. In his sermon The only thing that matters, William Taylor argues that we need to sit at the feet of Jesus to hear the voice of God. For us today, this means reading and meditating on Scripture, the authoritative word of God.

We do not Listen to Jesus in prayer is taken from the sermon The only thing that matters which can be found in our media library>>>
