praying without ceasing

If only reading it and agreeing with the advice could help with putting it into practice.

We are lacking always, and therefore we have need to be praying always. The world is always alluring, and therefore we need to be always a-praying. Satan is always a-tempting, and therefore we need to be always a-praying; and we are always a-sinning, and therefore we need to be always a-praying; and we are in dangers always, and therefore we need to be praying always …

Certainly prayerless families are graceless families, and prayerless persons are graceless persons.
