We know that God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent.
He knows the challenges we face, and what we need, better than we do ourselves.
We know that God answers all prayers, whether we recognize and understand the answer or not.
For these reasons, many Friends spend most of their prayer and worship time
listening to the Holy Spirit, rather than in specific, detailed prayers of petition.
Many Friends seek through prayer to unite with the will of God, and to embrace His plan for us.
"To be ready to listen means that we are ready to receive whatever God wishes to say. Yet our hearing is often hindered by presupposition and prejudice. . . If we limit ourselves to what we want to hear, not many of us will hear what we need to hear. It is critically important that we move past our personal preferences and allow God to say to us whatever He wills. . . As those who would serve God, we have not been asked to serve in 'an advisory capacity.' It is our role (and our high privilege) to wait upon His Word and do His bidding, whatever that may be."1
"When thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathens do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him."2
