How To Hear God: A Seven Day Guide to hearing God, Book 1.

by Ian Banner


Would you like to hear God more in your life than you do?
Do you hear stories of people who claim to hear God and wonder if that could ever happen to you?

IAN PICTUREAre you finding your Christian life a struggle and just wish God was more intimate, more involved?

Would you like some practical advice on how you can hear God?

If you answered any of these questions ‘Yes’, then this book is for you. Its purpose is to help you learn to hear God’s voice and to encourage you to do what he tells you.

Author Ian Banner says, “I have the privilege of being part of a team that regularly travels to preach, pray and prophecy to people.

This book is full of all the tips and lessons God has taught us over the past 5 years.

If you follow the advice written here, based on my very practical experience, I believe anyone with a heart to be used by God can learn to hear God’s voice and learn to pray, give words of knowledge and prophecy safely and effectively for other people.”

The book covers how to hear God yourself and how to use that gifting via words of knowledge, or prophecies, in sermons, when praying for people, running meetings or leading response times in church.

Chapters include 
Baby Steps in hearing God and Prophecy
What do I mean by Personal Prophecies?
Co-operating with God in your life and ministry.
How to pray with people safely.
How to develop you gifting from occasionally praying for people in small groups to calling out prophecies and words of knowledge in large meetings.
What do do when things go wrong?

Plus other blogs, books and apps you can use to help you.


Delightful book from a devout man

HOW TO HEAR GOD is a seven step, practical beginners guide to hearing God, words of knowledge and the gift of Prophecy. It was initially released a few years ago and this is an updated edition.

What I love about this book is that Ian gives examples from daily life to illustrate the points he is making and he does this really well. So well in fact that I read the book in one setting.

Ian encourages his readers to read a little bit every day however and to have a journal handy  for note taking.
It is mentioned in HOW TO HEAR GOD that a separate study guide for this book is available, which contains extra exercises and notes. You can use this individually or in small groups. This guide is available for free.

Ian explains what a personal prophecy is and how we can know that the information which comes to us is from God. He explains it in such a way that I think; ‘We should all know about this.’ This is book One and I’m already looking forward to book Two.

This is a delightful book filled with personal anecdotes and directions of a devout man who clearly walks with God and would love nothing better than for others to do the same. I highly recommend this book for anyone who struggles to hear God’s voice in their life and also for us who can do with some fine tuning.


Hi – I am Ian Banner and I have a few passions …

First I am passionate about the God whom I serve. I am a 52 years old born-again charismatic Christian who lives in Sheffield, UK.

I am passionate about my family. I have been married to my wife Merle for over 25 years – we met at university and we have 2 lads, studying at University. We live and worship at a local church in Sheffield.

I am the co-director of a charity in Uganda, called Forever Caring Homes. The charity is designed to look after young children who have lost their parents through the AIDS epidemic that swept through Africa. It’s quite small, and lots of others do work like this as well, but I do it because I felt the lord tell me to.

Finally, I write books and blogs.
