The thing is, if He speaks to me, how well am I able to understand and do what He means???
The Holy Spirit "makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered," we have in Romans 8:26. So, in communicating with our Father, in intercession, the Holy Spirit prays "with groanings which cannot be uttered". So, I consider this means the Holy Spirit's prayer is deeper than words, very personal and intimate in love's groanings.
So, if we have deeper connection with the Holy Spirit, deeper than words, we have the best communication, in His love. "But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him." 1 Corinthians 6:17) We can feel what He is feeling, as well as hear whatever He says.

Very often, it is just a knowing inside of you. Also, God loves to speak through your intellect....I have only had that still, small, voice, only once. I believe only once.

"rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." (1 Peter 3:4)
In the "gentle and quiet spirit" of God's love, we have God guiding us reliably, according to His own level of intelligence and knowledge. Plus, He has us coordinated with all the others in the Body of Jesus.
And we have Your Example, of how You are in love, so we sample how we need to be in loving every person. Personal, caring, sensitive, sweet . . . in this love we have Your "knowledge and all discernment" (Philippians 1:9) for what to do do love each and any person. "It is deeper than words."

One bitter cold wintry night a fellow missionary in China was woke up by the Holy Spirit and told him to take a certain amount of money to a missionary couple who were leaving for the states the next morning. The temperature outside was 30 below zero. Nevertheless he traveled across town to the missionary couples door and handed them the money. Oh praise the Lord, praise the Lord they said, this is the exact amount that we need to finish buying our plane tickets. Man who was woke up was named Carl Mumfort. This man also fasted for 40 days only taking water during that time. The above is true I was there.

This question was prompted by my most recent prompting by the Holy Spirit.
In a restaurant with my grandson my attention was drawn to a waitress. From past experience I realized that the Holy Spirit was pushing me to witness to her. However I did not witness to her. Later as we got in our car she came out the door and looked around, again I relies the Holy Spirit was prompting me to witness to her and so I said the following, okay Lord if she comes out that door again I will get out and witness to her. Before my grandson got settled in the car she came out again.
Now I got out and witnessed to her my grandson was standing right with me. She accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal savior right there.

Yes. He speaks to me and tells me to do various things, mostly in service to others. It could be feeding the hungry, like buying groceries and donating them to the mission, or evangelizing, or placing my hand on a person and praying for them, or leading a person in prayer to accept Jesus.

One way the Holy Spirit prompts me is to continually have something in front of me to remind me of what he is desiring of me. Recently I was struggling with forgiveness, and it seemed that everything that I heard or picked up was dealing with forgiveness. God kept it before me, until I agreed with him, that it was a requirement. I confessed it as sin, and asked for his help in that area, and was able to give it over to him, to work with, asking for his help, and his peace, when I did that, he quit bringing it before me. I am greatful for his help in keeping me on the right path, and it feels really good to be in agreement with him, rather than in opposition. Thank you Jesus for your help thru the person of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

"Ever had the Holy Spirit to prompt you?
Yes, of course. It was the Father's Spirit that prompted me to Acknowledge, confess and embrace Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
"How does the Holy Spirit prompt you or push you into action?"
With a whisper. A calm and gentle voice that clearly, through His Word, identifies in me, and separates from me, that which is self centered and carnal, while continually revealing and enabling that which inspired and influenced of Him.
Can you give an example?
Only in the life that I am inspired and empowered to live. There is no boasting in that statement. The life that I live, I live by the love, faith, and grace of the Son.

It can be a long time impression for a big project, or sometimes very 'abrupt'. It is an inner conviction that doesn't go against the Bible or reality of life, though a lot of time it is quite unexpected. The longest one is calling into full-time ministry. The shortest is bump into a Filipino service, then go to Philippines for a short mission trip, all things happen within 2 months. All is about obedience and quiet hearing.

Sometimes it is gentle. Sometimes a push or a nudge. Usually a great desire, too. You can depend on His power to help. Jobs are not easy. I have yet to received a job from the Lord that was easy. However, here we are not talking of promptings. There are jobs and then there are prompting you into action spur of the moment type thing.

The Holy Ghost prompts me in about every aspect.
The flesh some times don't want to get cleaned up go to Church, the same with witnessing, lead song service, Praise service, Bible study, prayer even fasting, helping some one or one's in need, outreach Church services etc.

The Holy Spirit's #1 way to prompt people is through the inward witness. That feeling that you have deep in your gut. Some call it intuition or a 6th sense, but it is really the Holy Spirit prompting you.

Yes. Examples are: 1) When you have the word stored inside of you, He brings to rememberence scriptures that I need for the situation I'm going through. All the ways of the Lord are Loving and Faithful (Ps. 25) "My God in Him will I trust" (Ps 91).I needed those for a trial I was going through in my life.
2)He prompts me to not do something or to do something. He prompted me not to war with a manager I had years ago. She was being unfair to me. I kept silent like the HS told me to and ended up getting a nice severance package out of it.
The HS Prompted me and said, "You take him" when my father called to say he needed to go to the hospital.
Holy Spirit leads and guides us, He's never pushy or demanding.
