Ask Questions and Wait for a Reply

In every conversation you have work to make listening the most significant role you play.  Refrain from saying anything other than questions to provoke more opportunities for listening.  Attempt, if at all possible from making conclusive statements, but rather use questions to move the conversation along.  In your prayers do the same thing by praying things like, “Lord, what is your will for me today?”  “Where do you want me to be working in this place?”  And so on.
