If my daughter goes a day or two with out calling me my feelings get kinda hurt. I know she is almost 30 but it is always a pleasure when she calls me. This is how Jesus feels, he wants us to call upon him everyday in prayer.
Here are a couple of my favorite verses on prayer.
8 Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us.
6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
