"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Philippians 4:6
Prayer is an essential component to keeping your head above water. Ask God for help to make it through the day, and he will help you.
Sometimes I think we make prayer out to be some complicated thing that we need to set aside large amounts of alone time in order to do. Although it's a wonderful thing to have a time set aside to pray, we can pray wherever we are. It's communicating and communing with God throughout the day. During the day, when we meet a struggle, turn to him. You can talk to Him in your head as you go about your daily tasks.
I have a long way to go, but I want to be a woman characterized by prayerfulness. I want my steps during the day to be taken with Christ by my side. I want my decisions and attitudes to align with His. Prayer is a necessary component in keeping your head above water.
