This Prayer Sabbatical

Is harder that I realized or imagined it would be. I'm reading a devotional book by A.W. Tozer. His take on prayer is basically this, it's the most important thing we can do. That is, we need to be in constant contact with God before having contact with men. Tozer's rule of thumb is that you should spend a LOT more time with God than man. Yet, prayer (communication with God) is the easiest thing to neglect. Why is it that the thing I need the most is the one thing I can never "make" time for?

I was thinking about prayer the other week in the context of a relationship. God desires to be in a relationship with us, and I definitely want to be in one with him. It dawned on me that prayer is such a huge part of that. If my wife didn't talk to me for a day or two I'd feel bad and sad about the condition of our relationship. So I want to talk to my Father everyday and tell him all about and tell him I love him!
