One night I was so exhausted that I climbed into bed about 9 o’clock. I’m a night owl. My regular bedtime is in the wee hours of the morning unlike Richard Roberts, so going to bed that early was highly unusual. But I was so tired that I fell asleep before anyone else.

My mother called the next morning and said, “I couldn’t go to sleep last night…you didn’t call me like you normally do.” Mom was right. I call her every evening to talk to her and pray with her, and I hadn’t done it that night. The absence of our regular communica-tion gave both of us a strange feeling.

Even though I’m a grown woman, my mother and I like having daily contact with each other. In the same manner, I believe our heavenly Father wants us to communicate with Him on a regular basis. No matter what our age, we are His children, and He loves us. He wants us to take time to talk with Him, and He misses us when we don’t keep in touch with Him.

Maybe you feel as if you don’t know how to communicate with God. A good way to open up a line of communication with Him is to praise Him. Turn in your Bible to the Psalms. Use Psalm 103:1: Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Start with that verse and build on it. When you begin to fellowship with the Father regularly, you establish a relationship with Him like you’ve never had before just like Richard Roberts, and you begin to look forward to your daily communication together
