God wants us to pray before we do anything at all, God wants us to praise in the middle of all also.
We tend to either leave prayer as the last resort and complain in the middle of the process.
Prayer is not something we do as believers, it is what we are.
This psalm starts with
Dear Lord, help us to pray without ceasing and praise you continually.
We are poor and needy O Lord, we can’t do either with full heart, no pray or praise.
