If you've been in the habit of reciting prayers instead of truly praying, you've been practicing a ritual, not enjoying a relationship. When God speaks to you in the morning, or when the Holy Spirit prompts you to pray for something, watch expectantly throughout the day for God's answer. Walking with God is not something you do for fifteen minutes each morning before getting on with your life. Walking with God is your life! It's an exciting adventure to be lived all day long!
