Not only does God speak to us, but we also speak to him. That’s because through Christ we are now God’s children and God is our Father. He delights to answer our prayers, as a way both of blessing us richly and completing his plans for the world. We each pray privately, for in that way we each express the wonder of our new relationship with him. We also regularly pray together as church family, and we hold at least one weekly meeting for that purpose.
