Think of the many times our Saviour told those who follow him to pray. Prayer, then, is a commandment from God; and as such it is something that we must do. Consider then the dangers of neglecting your own prayer life. It is more than simply being lax in your faith if you fail to do so, and do so regularly. It is to be disobedient to the words he spoke to us directly in the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity.
