I've always been curious about this. I'm an ex-JW with serious God issues but enough about me. In all the years I was a witness, I was always taught the proper way to pray. I knew to put something on my head if there was a brother in the building to show subjection, I knew to talk to Jehovah through Jesus name, etc. I knew what I could and could not ask for, but at no time did anyone ever teach me how to listen for the answer to my prayer. I cannot tell you how many times I got this advice, "Leave it in Jehovah's hands and don't do anything to take it back into your own." What the hell does that mean anyway? Nobody could ever explain it to me.
Did ya'll ever experience a two-way communication going on when you were JW's or were you just there because of guilt and terror like me? Thanks for any feedback.
