1 Thessalonians 5:17 pray continually,

How many of us remember initially entering a romantic relationship? We couldn’t wait to come home from school or work and talk to our boyfriend or girlfriend. There’s just something different about having a personal intimate conversation.

If they stopped calling daily and we only spoke to them once a week, we would think something’s wrong. We would think someone’s taking our place. Our level of intimacy diminishes.

God is a relational God. He desires close intimate relationship with us. He doesn’t want to settle for hearing from us only once a week. He knows something else is taking His place. He desires to hear from us all of the time. He wants to know our problems. He wants to hear how He positively impacts our lives. He wants us to acknowledge Him when we’re around our friends.

If we understand the importance of one on one time in earthly relationships, how much more should we have one on one time with God? Let’s build on our relationship with God with more One on one time.

Ephesians 6:18 Pray in the Spirit at all times, with every kind of prayer and petition. To this end, stay alert with all perseverance in your prayers for all the saints.
