Like last time with Bible reading, I provide below some guidelines, this time for individual prayer. Consider prayer to be more important than any other part of the day. And, just as Jesus rose up a that, to pray; when we proceed in this order, God’s Word will color our prayers.
For example, you are up to Psalm 23:1 in your devotions.
Prayer is a rather general topic, so we again limit ourselves: we will consider prayer. As with reading the Bible in personal devotions, so private prayer requires that we retire to an isolated place where we can give undivided attention to our communication with Almighty God. Whether that time is early in the morning, late at night, or sometime in the middle, find a couple of times in the day that work for for prayer.
Private or personal prayer is prayer that an individual makes all by himself, alone, without others. David (Psalm 51), Hezekiah (II Kings ff), Daniel (Daniel ), Paul (II Timothy 1:3), and Jesus himself (Mark ) prayed privately. Even though it is true that we are Christ’s relationship with his Father in heaven. Even if it must be in writing, plan when you will pray each day, and rigorously adhere to that plan.

It is a common sight to see a man and a woman, close enough for feet to touch, so involved with their phones that they utter not a word to each other the whole hour they eat. Prayer is communication with God who is on his throne in heaven—covenant communion with our Father. The next time you go to a restaurant, observe the married (or dating) couples sitting in the booths around you. As adopted sons and daughters of our Father in heaven, will we not, every day, praise him, thank him, make our requests known to him, and confess our sins to him? He, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, has quickened us together with Christ. The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ has adopted us, all of his grace, and we enjoy rich fellowship with him (II Corinthians ). To ask the question is to answer it: of course we pray (and must)!
