God and Languages
What is really neat is that language is transcendent and as we use words inside our head, God can skip the "middle man" of physical transmission media and insert His words in our head as we use our own words (dreams, day dreams, solving problems, talking to oneself, etc.). I believe God speaks to us through other media (Bible, prophets, nature, etc.) but we also need to be attuned to Him speaking to us directly inside of us!

Day of Prayer
And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. [Mat 6:5-8]You have to wonder: Did Jesus have us in mind when He said that? [I'd say yes but that's my opinion.]
