Through prayer we create a close relationship with the Lord. It is a special moment in mind with the Father that we must cherish and cultivate. We can give him glory, address to him our difficulties, our sorrows, as well as our joys, our gratitude… It is also a time of sharing, during which the Lord wants to speak to us and reveal things to us.
