A lot of our prayers state the following:
God thank you for this day.
I ask for wisdom at my job.
Protect me as I go to and from work.
Keep my children safe and protected.
Increase my finances God.

We pray, but a lot of us don’t wait on a response from God. We’ll ask for wisdom, protection, and more, but instead of us waiting on a response on how to obtain those things, we move on to the next request.

Prayer is a conversation between us and God. Give God an opportunity to respond to your requests. He may give us our answers the moment we pray.
Take time and listen.

The Spirit shows what is true and will come and guide you into the full truth. The Spirit doesn’t speak on his own. He will tell you only what he has heard from me, and he will let you know what is going to happen. John 16:13 (CEV)
