Unoffered prayer is not merely a tragedy, it is a sin. Samuel said, “Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way” (1 Samuel 12:23).
Over and over again, the Bible not only invites us to pray—the Bible commands us to pray. The Bible says of Jesus, “And He spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint” (Luke 18:1).
The Lord Jesus said in Mark 14:38, “Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.” The Apostle Paul said, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” (Philippians 4:6).
One reason you are so full of care right now is because you have not truly learned how to pray. You are to ask God for everything that you need.
