We should pray whenever, wherever and as many times as we want. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 advises us to "Pray incessantly." God wants for us to open up to him and communicate with him. "Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you" (James 4:8). Even though he knows it all, when we pray we demonstrate that we trust in him. And God is never too busy to answer our prayers! He is always ready to listen to the prayers of those who trust in him. As Psalms 65:2 states, "O Hearer of prayer, even to you people of all flesh will come."
