Children learn essential habits at an early age. Parents and guardians teach children all sorts of essential skills as they grow. These skills are necessary to live a functional life. Without them, we go through life disabled.
As children of God we must learn to pray. In fact, Jesus' disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. And He did! Prayer is something that should be a part of every Christians life. The act of prayer is essential to our growth as Christians. Without it, we are disabled spiritually.
One of the consistent things I have heard throughout this crisis is that folks are praying more, and more often. Maybe, just maybe, God is using this crisis to, among other things, teach us to pray!
