This chapter investigates the religious pedagogy and techniques of subjectification associated with learning to hear from God, which in essence is the act of training oneself to at once prepare for and cultivate surprise. It follows a small prayer group of young Vineyard believers as they both debate about and learn how to receive prophecy. It also shows how language ideologies serves as an engine of typification and elaboration, affecting the way that prophecy is expressed, and concludes by explaining how the very act of recounting prophecy functions as an instantiation and continuation of the prophecy itself.

Keywords:   Prophecy, Religious Pedagogy, Language Ideology, Techniques of Subjectification
