I know reading and prayer is one way... could you please list others...I feel my relationship w God is slipping.. i need to focus on him more.
How do you wait on the Lord? Let me give you an example. Let's say you and I are having a conversation face-to-face. Let's say you ask a question, and I pause or I remain quiet for a few seconds. But you know that I'll answer, you know that I'll respond and you wait for my response.I talk to God... but sometimes he doesnt talk back lol.. well sometimes through out the day..but i dont know how to get him to talk to me like right while im praying... hmm in a way I feel abit pushy XD he is God so he doeanst have to talk to me when "I" want him to....so I guess... I should say...err..how do I wait on him... yah thats a better question.
How do i wait on the Lord? (during prayer..when i ask him questions and what not??)

Same thing with God. You are talking with him and you don't hear a response, but He's remaining silent. Well, first, He will respond. Just because he's not responding to you right that second or within a week's time doesn't mean He won't. Just as I was talking with you, I AM going to respond but maybe not right away. Does this make sense?
In Psalm 27:14, it says, "Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD." The word, "wait" comes from the Hebrew word qawa and it means to "expect, patiently." So, how do you wait? You expect God to answer. But be patient! Because it's not going to be on your time. I promise you, it won't. So go about your day, and open up your heart and your ears to His voice. Pray that He makes His voice loud enough for you to hear and that He helps you to expect on Him.
