A Practice That is Changing how I Pray (& Hear God's Voice)

Asking Jesus questions.

Friends, this has become a game changer in my prayer life.

It is a practice that is deepening my relationship with God.

Jesus, what do you think of me right now?
Jesus, how are you loving me right now?
Jesus, what do you have to say to me about ________?


It sounds like such a simple little thing. But really, it has been changing me and how I hear God speak to me.


Let me back up a bit to February 2018.


I was in Phoenix for one of the regional Blessed is She retreats. One of the talks was given by a priest. In his homily at Mass, he spoke about the importance of inviting the presence of Jesus into every area of our lives, asking Him what He thinks or desires for us in a situation.

Jesus, what do you have to say to me about ________?
What do you think about ________?

It made an impression on me. 

I came home from the weekend and kept thinking about that question.
So much so, that I even hung those words up on my letter board in my living room.

That was two years ago.

Since then, I have noticed in little ways a heart shift within myself. If I start to worry or feel anxious about particular situations, I try to catch myself and ask that question, Jesus what do you have to say to me about this?

It slows me down, settles my easily rattled heart.

It is not a fool-proof method, but I am finding myself being more aware of my inner thought life as I live each day.


This practice of asking Jesus questions has helped me nurture and make time more for silence when I pray in the morning. 

When I get distracted in prayer (which is often!), I will go back to asking Jesus and just sitting in the silence, listening...waiting.

With asking Jesus these and various types of questions, it has also more deeply developed my ability to hear the voice of God in my life.

When I was new to growing in my faith, I felt so confused about how to know if this was God speaking to me or not. I over thought it and sometimes got myself worked up into a tizzy.

The older I get, the more I mellow and settle in my spirit; especially in a spiritual sense.


Asking Jesus questions helps me listen better and see the need for silence in my life. It is teaching me new things about the nature of God and how he personally speaks to me.


What are the spiritual practices changing you in your life right now?

What is God doing in you and where is he moving in new ways?



Ask Jesus a question and see where it takes you.

  1. I have never seen anything that has worked so effective like Chief Dr Lucky spell that was able to bring my lover back to me within 48 hours. I run into luck on that beautiful day that i found Chief Dr Lucky contact details on an article that someone wrote about Chief Dr Lucky i had no choice that to contact and trust him. Chief Dr Lucky shocked me because i was not expecting to get a positive result as fast as that because the way my boyfriend left me was terrible, he lift me for my friend and i was told by Chief Dr Lucky that she used a black magic spell on him. Since the return of my lover i have made a promise that i will write out Chief Dr Luck on the internet and his contact details are +2348132777335 and via email: Chiefdrlucky@gmail.com .

  2. my husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr jeffrey can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr jeffrey . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:
