To know God's will

When you want to know God's will, set your own aside, together with any other thought or plan and, with great humility ask to become aware of it in your prayers. Then whatever is formed or bears weight in your heart will be from God. Those who have greater boldness and practice in praying for this, hear the instruction more clearly within themselves and become more careful in their lives, doing nothing without divine instruction.

Holy Elder Joseph the Hesychast
