Prayer is a two way spiritual communication between man and God. Note the clause “two_way”. Prayer is a medium to talk to God and also hear from God”.
Just like communication is essential for humans,it is also important for us to communicate with God. Some of us unknowingly are keeping malice with God. We only remember to talk to God when there’s an urgent need – when we are sick, when we are broke; but when everything is fine we totally forget about the place of prayers.
Let’s relate to our earthly father, you can imagine living in the same house and not talking to your father for months and then gbam, one morning you realise your wallet is empty and you walk up to your father then you say oh! Good morning Daddy I need some money. The first time he could grant the request out of sympathy but when it becomes a consistent thing, pity will fail, he will get tired of your constant behavior and then he would become distant from you. In the same manner, that’s how it is with God. Without constant communication with God, we create distance between us and God.
Wouldn’t we rather want to be like David and be called “A friend of God” rather than the lady that picks the crumbs off the table? It all fall backs to building a relationship with God and this can be gotten in the place of prayer.
Religion has so much taken the place of Christianity, some of us are more religious than been Christians, we only pray in church or in our bedrooms. The bible urges us to pray without season.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 says pray without ceasing.
It doesn’t matter where you are, prayers should be constant. I am not against creating a particular time to pray, its good too but if because your prayer time is 5am and you sleep off, it means you can’t pray anymore then you probably should adopt the ceaseless kind of prayer.
God knew the importance of prayer and that was why he thought us how to pray.

What prayers does to our life As ladies.
Don’t leave your relationships to chance, pray for godly people to come into your life with whom you can connect. Don’t force relationships to happen. Pray for them to happen. Then when they do, nurture them with prayer.
