You need to develop your own personal times of prayer. Jesus said, “When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you” (Matthew 6:6). The true strength of your Christian life will be measured by these times of intimacy with God. The prophet Daniel had set for himself three times of private prayer each day (Daniel 6:10). This might not be so practical for your lifestyle, but if you learn to make prayer a priority and develop a godly habit you will make more progress in your spiritual growth. Often the best time to pray is to get up a little earlier in the morning. Each day is a gift to be opened with prayer.
