Your prayer life is a reflection of your relationship with God. It shows whether your relationship with God is intimate or if God is just a resource you can go to to get your list of things you need.
If we find ourselves not taking time to be alone with God on a daily basis.. and we go days without talking to Him with more than just sentences. Chances are deep down with in you you just view God as a resource, a place to get things. Not someone you can connect with to “become.”
This is why prayer life is important during your “bad moments” and then fades away after the bad moment has past.
God is just a place where you can take your list of things to.
He doesn’t want that, He desires to have a relationship with you that goes beyond the fulfillment of “needs”.
He wants a relationship with you that connects intimately.
