Listening Comes First in Prayer

Prayer is an act of submission and prayer is simply an expression of faith; so in submission and faith how should we proceed to enter into our prayers. When we pray, we are entering into the presence of God? How should we enter?

Ecc5.1 Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. To draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they are doing evil. Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few.

First, we should guard our steps…but how? We should be prepared to be quiet and listen with our hearts. Secondly, we should be organized and not use that time to give a sermonette in public or ramble in private.
