If I were to ask you, “When was the last time you spoke to your best friend?” You’d probably be able to tell me the last time. What about the last time you talked to God? Is it as often? It’s probably not (unless it’s like finals week or something). Yet, this is the most important relationship we have in our lives.
Prayer is ALWAYS a response to God. You may think, “No… I was the one who decided to pray,” but you didn’t! Isn’t that crazy? Anytime we pray, it’s because God has initiated a conversation with us—a desire within us to speak to Him. Now, think about all those times you’re not praying (especially when you feel like you should pray but don’t). God is that best friend that ALWAYS wants to speak with you. Are you that friend that comes up with excuses? Or do you make the time to talk?
