If we use our prayer time to have a conversation with God, it will be a two way communication.  As you seek God for answers, you need to listen carefully for His will and direction.  Don't expect immediate answers unless you take the time to be in His presence to recognize His voice with His answers.  Consider the following verses and how they demonstrate seeking God's will in prayer.
