Our closest and most satisfying human relationships are marked by mutually enjoyable communication and connection. And sure, we say we have a personal relationship with God--but can we really expect that kind of fulfilling connection with God? Can He truly be our best friend, a friend who talks to us, understands us, supports and cares for us and who invites us to share our lives with Him!
The answer is, Yes! God wants to be a close friend, and honest-to-goodness confidante and companion. Not just our "boss" or the Person we go to when we've messed up. He wants to be a real friend. And we can learn to develop that friendship through prayer. Contains six weeks of lessons.
Connection and communication are vital in relationships, but what about in your relationship with God? Is it more of a duty than a delight? In this 6-session Bible study, the first in a series from Pray! Resources, you'll discover greater joy and intimacy in your most important relationship.
