Prayer is often practiced after something. That is, we pray after we’re worried, after we’re scared, or after a hard time. We might think we’re praying before (e.g., before a surgery or event), but we’re already worried. While prayer is encouraged all the time (and under all circumstances – emotional or otherwise), prayer is our primary work – it comes first. Prayer for God’s will, His agenda, and His guidance each day (and throughout) is key to following Jesus. It’s our living, breathing road map that helps us discern God’s wisdom – not His overall plan – but His wisdom in the moment.
That is enough for us to handle.
