While he was saying this to me, I bowed with my face toward the ground…I opened my mouth and began to speak…Daniel 10:15, 16
Do you find yourself wishing that God would speak audibly to you like He did with people in the Bible? He spoke to the prophets, the priests, the kings, the elderly, the apostles, the early church, and even to young children like little Samuel. Sometimes, He spoke to the enemies of His people. But whenever He spoke, His voice was so clear to the person listening that there was no mistaking what He had said. How can you hear God’s voice today?
While God can speak anyway He chooses, He speaks to me through His Word. So on May 26th through June 4th, I am going to be listening to God’s Word. Join me for 40 minutes each day, for ten days, as we embark on a journey together, listening to what God has to say.
Following our ten days of listening to what God has to say, I then invite you to join me for The Daniel Prayer online Bible study that begins June 11th. The pattern is based on something my mother taught me as I was growing up: “Anne, listen before you speak.” I am taking her instruction to a new level and applying it to our relationship with God. After listening to what He says, this study will encourage us to then speak to Him about it. Because one key to effective is to listen to God speak, then pray in response to what He has said. It’s been called “reversed thunder”— praying God’s Word back to Him.
So . . . God is speaking! Let’s rise up and listen to what He has to say. Then fall down on our knees as together we learn to pray so effectively that Heaven is moved and our prayers are answered!

For the Lord will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you His people. 1 Samuel 12:22
Dan and JoAnn Cummins are dear friends who have a passionate commitment to pray for and with our national leaders. The following article* gives a great perspective on the events of May 4th — the National Day of Prayer:

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Isaiah 60: 1-3
Our world is increasingly dark. Through the aid of traditional news sources, online and social media, the darkness seems to be growing more dense and pervasive. The result is a climate of Anger. Fear. Hatred. Persecution. Prejudice. Violence. Immorality. Danger. There is a spirit of oppression. Agitation. Uncertainty. As I have pondered the global condition, I’ve wondered if it really is worse than the 1st century A.D. when armies were mobilizing, nations were shifting, the people were cowering, and the men who were leading bordered on the insane… yet held absolute power.
Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you while you may be found – Psalm 32:6
The Psalmist implies that there comes a time when God cannot be found. A time when God hides Himself. A time that may have begun in America.

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give [her] will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give [her] will become in [her] a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14
Most American women are decent. Caring. Hardworking. In many ways we are the backbone of our nation. I am quite certain we are the backbone of the Christian church. Yet I’m alarmed. We are under attack. And we seem to be unaware of it.
