If you're a believer of Christ, how often do you relate to God?

Just as unique as the experience of love, so is the experience of prayer. Only he who practices it can live it. Talking with God can never be boring, for each second that He allows us to be in His presence is the most powerful experience, almost indescribable. We don't want that time to ever stop, for there is nothing more important that being in His presence. He makes us feel important. He shows us His love. He reveals his will to us. He protects us under his shadow and provides for all of our needs. The only way prayer can become monotonous and boring is when it lacks love and commitment. Have you ever experienced showing love and it not being returned to you? That is how God feels because He has shown us his love in so many ways and yet He still sees how some of his children keep a distance with an attitude of indifference. Prayer is a personal relationship with God, where He delights himself hearing each word that comes out of our lips. "Therefore I say unto you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them." (Mark 11:24) The Lord wants us to enjoy his intimacy, in the same manner that a loving father enjoys his relationship with his kids. He is willing to move his angels in our favor so that we may obtain what our hearts desires; because if we able to ask in faith, He will do it. "He that did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?"(Romans 8:32) Without a doubt, having a personal relationship with God is a fountain of life.:-)

You're right. Prayer is not boring. When I was a kid, I wondered how anyone could "pray without ceasing." But my next door neighbor shared some woderful ideas about prayer. She suggested that every woman should pray for family members as she folds their clothes. She should pray for the neighbors as she stirs the soup on the top of the stove. And if anyone is looking for a private prayer closet away from family, she suggested praying while cleaning the bathroom. No one wants to interrupt while you're doing that, lest they be called to help. I've always remembered that. And one day, when I was at a new retail job - in housewares - and everyone was too busy to help me learn how to run the cash register, I was stuck folding new towels. There in my workplace, as I folded towels, I prayed for my coworkers. I've come to enjoy the way God answers, too - when friends (or even strangers) feel compelled to say or do something they don't understand. Or when one is led to a particular passage in the Bible.
