“Be silent, and listen to God. Let your heart be in such a state of preparation that His Spirit may impress upon you such virtues as will please Him. Let all within you listen to Him. This silence of all outward and earthly affection and of human thoughts within us is essential if we are to hear His voice. This listening prayer does indeed involve a hushing of all outward affection.”

"But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
We can choose to set aside time, free from distractions to sit in God’s presence for the purpose of focussing on Him, gazing upon him and listening to him. Jesus encourages us to go to our room, close the door and pray to God in secret. It’s not about showing off, it’s about drawing near to him, letting His presence heal, revive and restore us, and his voice to infuse faith, hope and love in us as we seek his face.
8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:8 NIV
