I was taught to hear from the holy spirit buy joining prayer groups and keeping a journal on what we prayed for people and the results of that answered prayer.
This allowed us to determine the difference between our thoughts when we prayed for someone
and the holy spirit thoughts when we received these.
Like a child we were learning how the holy spirit spoke to us.
What method were you taught ?
to understand when God the holy spirit gave an answer to prayer and hearing from God?
