Pray Then Listen: A Heart-to-Heart with God is the kind of book that if you are a Believer, have been since birth, have it running through your veins, that you will open and read as if it were nourishment.
That said, if you are on the fence, well, you might dip your toe into it, and one would hope that toes becomes warmly inviting for where you are about to travel, but if you are a skeptic, well, sure, this is most likely not the book for you (that said, I urge you to still give it a shot).
As for author Teresa O’Driscoll’s stance here, her offerings of sample prayers along with pertinent, salient scriptures, they showcase a person who has a personal, heartfelt recounting to proffer, along with a plethora of wondrous biblical verses, et al.
Now, of course, we all know that prophets throughout the ages have heard God’s voice and proclaimed his messages with confidence. And we believe our God still speaks to us today. But how do we hear God’s voice is it is not coming through on our own personal frequency, persay?
Our lives are noisy, and our heads are filled with so many voices vying for attention and influence. So how do we receive clear guidance from God for our everyday lives?
This is where O’Driscoll’s book comes to the fore as it may not have you hearing his voice, but the book provides enough basic prayers to help you start a real and genuine conversation with God, that’s for sure.
