Bible reading is God's way of speaking to you and me. Praying is our way of speaking to God. The Lord wants to be more than just a Saviour to us; He wants to be our Friend. Developing this friendship through prayer is called fellowship. Fellowship with God through the Lord Jesus Christ is the most important activity of the believer. Don't ever forget this fact. Learn to talk to the Lord about everything. If you do this, your spiritual life will grow in wisdom by the Word of God. The experience of answered prayer is thrilling. There ought to be a time everyday that we personally go to the Lord on our knees. Then there ought to be a time everyday that we go to the Lord in prayer as a family. And, we ought always to be in the mood of prayer wherever we go, because God is only a prayer away. That is real fellowship. Notice what the Word of God says about prayer.
