Is prayer the only way God will listen to you and what does Amen mean?


I have studied the bible for many years and I have never found anything that reveals we can communicate with God outside of prayer. Is there something I have missed the says different. And only in the New Testament have I seen the word Amen. We use this word following the end of our prayers. Is this a requirement or a tradition? What importance, if any, does Amen have? Will God hear are prayer without Amen?

    Edward J. Palumbo- Many thanks for commenting. I realize through spripture that God communicates with us. I am asking if prayer was/is the only means for us to communicate from ourselves to God? I agree the Holy Spirit promps us. Again many thanks.

    "All prayers are answered instantly and in the affirmative. Always!" This is not a scriptural statement. Prayers for anything outside the will of God ARE NOT answered affirmatively. egoism is psychobabel a false religion of men, not of God

    Carol- I will clarifywhat I'm asking.. I don't recall reading anything in the NT for christians as to how christian are to communicate TO God aside from the form of prayer. Which is why I asked if I had missed something. Thank you for your answer.

    luvtoowrite- Thanks for your answer. Until I had asked this question about amen, I never knew the true meaning behind it. It seem everybody who's commented so far knew it except me. Thanks

    sheilamyers- Thank you for your comment. I would think any conversation we have with God could be counted as a prayer as long as it's done with a sincere heart. Thanks for your imput.
