To have a relationship with Jesus, we need to speak with Him every day. This is what we call Prayer. There are many ways of praying. What is important is to find time every day, and do it.
The goal during your Becoming Catholic journey (and for life) is to establish a habit of praying at least 15 minutes each day in solitude with God. While it is good to pray throughout the day and while busy, it is absolutely essential to set aside some dedicated quiet time with God.
“Unless you pray every day, your relationship with God is probably an illusion.” ~Fr Jacques Philippe
