True friendship comes when the silence between two people is comfortable.

We pray in order to hear God, but hearing Him requires that we spend some time abiding silently in His presence. We will find this silent part difficult if we harbor unconfessed sin or if we doubt His goodness. Jesus said that we are His friends if we do what He commands us. Let us therefore do those things which make for peaceful silence between us and our Lord.
