Talk to God even when your life is going good, meaning be grateful and say thanks for things that go well instead of just asking for help when things turn bad. Far too often we turn to god when we need help but we attribute luck when things turn good. Saying thanks and feeling gratitude to god when things are going your way or when something positive happens is like building up bonus points. God is kind and compassionate, and never gives us more than we can handle even though it may feel like this at times. Some people try to reason or make deals with god when things are dark but as soon as the situation brightens they forget about the almighty. In order to build a solid relationship with God you must communicate often, and be grateful for the positive things that you have even when things are not great in other areas of your life.
