Hearing God in Prayer

Prayer is personal communication and communion with God in worship. To pray is to engage in a conversation with the Living God. Because prayer is a mode of communication, it must involve our listening to God. In fact, the listening aspect of prayer is probably more important than the verbal aspect. God desires to communicate his heart and his will to his people. In this teaching, Dr. Wilfred Graves Jr. offers several strategies for hearing the voice of God during your daily times of prayer.

Basic Principles of Prayer

Prayer is personal communication with God in worship. Its primary purpose is to cause us to enter into vital fellowship and relationship with the Father, to grow in Christ, and to become Holy Spirit-empowered saints of God. When we dialog with the Lord in prayer, we should never forget that we are communicating with someone who deeply loves us.

This video is a short presentation on the topic of prayer by Dr. Wilfred Graves Jr.  We hope that it will help you to grow in your awareness of God’s presence and to fellowship with the Lord on a daily basis.

West Angeles Consecration (January 2022)

A consecration is a short season in which the people of God dedicate themselves to seeking him in special and focused ways.  You are invited to join Bishop Charles Edward Blake and the members of West Angeles Church in a month of consecration. Our January consecration will consist of corporate prayer and fasting (see Isaiah 58, Daniel 10:3, Matthew 4:2, Esther 4:16, etc.).

To fast is to give up food or food and drink for a period of time in order to focus on the Lord and hear him more clearly. The discipline of fasting is a form of self-denial that helps us to curb the appetites of the flesh and to submit ourselves to God.

When coupled with prayer, fasting can bring about all kinds of spiritual benefits including directionphysical healing, and freedom from demonic oppression. Fasting is also beneficial because: (1) It increases a sense of humility and dependence on God; (2) It seems to heighten mental and spiritual alertness; and (3) It often adds a depth of urgency to our prayer times.

If you have never gone on a fast, then I want to encourage you to consider doing so for even one or two meals. You may be surprised by the results of this simple act of commitment to the Lord. To download the West Angeles consecration guide for January 2022, please click on the link below:
