Create a new experience with God by turning off a noisy world.

We live in a world of noise. Everywhere we go, we hear sounds that compete for our minds and hearts. Listening to God requires a deliberate choice to shut out the chaos around us and focus our thoughts.

Listen, by Rueben P. Job, is a 40-day experience created to offer help to those new to prayer, those with a daily prayer routine and those whose lives seem too busy to pray. The six weekly helps build and deepen prayer practice. As we learn to listen, we find a new depth and fulfillment in our relationship with God and a new experience of God as guide and companion in our lives.

The leader guide includes everything a group leader needs to plan and facilitate a six-session study, helping participants explore what they have read during the week and discuss their reading with the group. The guide walks leaders through the study format and provides options for tailoring sessions to the style and timeframe of each group.

Listen is perfect for use by individuals, small groups, or congregations during Lent, Easter, or any time of year.
