When we as Christians pray, what is our expectations? Do we simply expect God to hear our prayers or do we expect to hear God talk with us spirit to spirit?
In today’s message Bro. Leo teaches what most of Religion neglects to teach, which is the indwelling of His Holy Spirit in every true Christian and our ability to converse with Him there. Every spiritually born again Christian has the ability within to converse with God and be instructed by God in all matters.
If you are not sure if God’s Spirit dwells in you or if you have never experienced conversing with God one on one, please listen to this message and study these scriptures.
