Jesus continues to teach his followers about prayer–an important element of discipleship. We need to be persistent in prayer not for the sake of informing God of our needs, but to train ourselves to expect and appreciate what God does for us.
This Incarnate God can become present in us through the sacramental grace of the mystery of the Holy Eucharist wherein we eat the body and drink the blood of Christ whose effect is to intensify the indwelling of God in us.
