A Perspective On Prayer 12

Imagine that you and one other person are peddling bicycles in a large open area. You try to keep your feet from touching the ground, so you must keep moving. Very soon, one thing becomes obvious. You are either heading closer together or farther apart. Nothing is static. The same thing is true with my relationship with Jesus. As is the case with any relationship, it cannot remain static. It is constantly moving. We are either getting closer, or further apart. The more I am distracted by other things, the less He is a part of my daily experience. But
the reverse is also true. The more I intentionally spend time with Him, the closer we become. And this is not limited to formal prayer in church. I can bring Him into my daily experience by constantly (or at least repeatedly) interacting with Him about what is happening.
