God loves His children coming to Him in the intimacy of prayer. The Scriptures tell us, "The prayer of the upright is His delight."(Proverbs 15:8) Do you want to delight God?

He flees when we resist him if we are submitted to God. Martin Luther said, "I have so much to do (today) that I should spend the first three hours in prayer." Maybe you don't have the time to go and spend the first three hours of each day in prayer, but at least pray as you go.
