Work the prayer muscle.
Prayer should always come first.
He was preparing himself for a crisis. It has to become a habit.
When apostles asked how to pray Jesus gave them this:
Little bit of a change means we need to make some adjustments.
Go to God confidently.
If you can't think of what to pray, sing. Hymns (and choruses) can open up our hearts to God.
"I need you, Oh I need you. Every hour I need you."
Come to Him.
You don't need to "fix" yuorself before you come to God. Prayer changes everything within us. Prayer doesn't change God. He is always the same. We're in a different place when (and after) we pray.
We have no idea how many things haven't happened becaues of prayer (for good and bad).
Can we sense God? If we know Him we can learn how to sense Him continually.
1 John 5:14-15
Confidence comes from consistency.
