If we pray to hear God’s voice, he speaks to us. Ask for the gift of hearing and responding to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit. Let his will be done in your life.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth. He shows you your faults and virtues. He reveals to you the goodness of God the Father. The Spirit creates a desire to know Jesus more, and this produces good fruit in your life.
With time, God’s Spirit guides you more each day. You hear his voice, and you respond in loving obedience.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

PRAYER TO HEAR GOD’S SPIRIT (regular text)
Dear heavenly Father, here I am in your presence.
Fill me with your Spirit and transform me. Give me the gift of hearing and obeying your voice. Let me be in tune with your Holy Spirit that I may hear his call.
Let me not hesitate or be afraid, for when the Lord speaks, his will must be done.
Let me listen to and trust your voice. Teach me to depend completely on you. Let me abandon myself, and present myself, as a living sacrifice to almighty God.
All for the honor and glory of the King of kings.
Accept my prayer, oh loving Father. In the name of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ.
