As we read our Bible we will notice that Jesus established patterns that enable Him to maintain a special love relationship with God the Father. He prayed in the early morning, during the night without sleep, alone, and when He was away from others. If Jesus felt a need for a regular communion with the Father, we should feel and even greater need to get in our quiet time with Him.

2.Find a place to be alone with God
3.Follolw a procedure..
