Prayer is something that is overlooked and often underestimated. Sometimes people tend to view it as a last resort in an emergency. But God told us to pray without ceasing. This is hard to do when one is worrying or distracted by the cares of this world.
Social media is a huge distraction for many, myself included. Cell phones keep us connected to the entire world. We are well-connected, but our relationships have become weak and shallow. I have many “friends” online that I have never met and if I saw them in a public place I may or may not would say hello. This is not a true friend at all.
Jesus is a true friend. He said he will never leave us or forsake us, and He won’t change on us, either. He is more faithful and true than any friend on the planet. We should spend time developing this relationship with our Savior, our Friend, through prayer and fasting. Let God speak to our souls and enrich our lives with His goodness. I have tasted and seen that the Lord is good.
