“A changed world begins with us, and a changed us begins when we pray.”-Eugene Peterson
1. When you spend time with God, do you spend more time talking or listening? Why?
2. What are some of the things in our lives that distract us from hearing the voice of God?
3. Why do you think God called the boy Samuel instead of Eli the priest?
4. What difference would it make if we prayed, “speak, your servant is listening” during worship, when reading scripture, or when we take a morning walk?
Prayer Exercise: Read a Psalm for 7 days. Pray Samuel’s prayer. Be still and listen. Suggested Psalms: 1, 19, 23, 42, 84, 103, 121
