The more time you spend in fellowship with the Lord the more His character and personality are revealed to you and manifested through you.

Many only pray when they are faced with struggle or misfortune in life. This is the exact opposite of what one must do. You need to constantly be in prayer with God so that when rough times occur, you have a close relationship with God.
