Allow backend to send multiple messages in intervals.

I have a simple backend set up connect to Alexa. User invokes the skill, my backend responds with something, keeping the session open, the user can respond back and continue the conversation.

However, I want the backend to send multiple messages without waiting for a response from user every time. Something like this:

User: Alexa invoke skill

Alexa: Hi How can I help you?

(After 2 seconds, if the user hasn't responded)

Alexa: Are you still there?

I looked into the re prompt object, but that doesn't quite solve my problem. I basically need a way for my backend to send a message to Alexa without the user requesting for the message.
