Prayer is also an important part of this relationship. The Bible says that Jesus would often leave the company of his friends to talk with the Father (Luke 5:16). Prayer is simply communicating with God by talking and listening. It’s imperative in our busy world that we take the time to be still in His presence and hear His voice, as it helps us build the character of Christ within us. Jesus said that we as Christians should find a place by ourselves, and just be intimate with God. Set aside time every day to pray!
