The real business
Here are some words of encouragement to be about the business of praying:
The real business of your life as a saved soul is intercessory prayer. Wherever God puts you in circumstances, pray immediately, pray that His Atonement may be realized in other lives as it has been in yours. Pray for your friends now; pray for those with whom you come in contact now.

Let Jesus be your adequacy today as you boldly approach his throne with your requests. Believe that he hears you and will be responsive to you (Hebrews 4:14-16).
