Pray Day and Night

Nehemiah 1

v6

Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned.
(I added the emphasis.)

It's good to pray often, and when we just got up in the morning, and before we go to bed at night. How can we stay awake and pay attention? Here's 1 way.

As soon as it's time to pray, write down 5 names of people you'll pray for. Then, go back and write down 1 simple thing to pray about for each of them. Pray the thing for each person, in order. If you think of something else before you finish, save the thought and don't think about it until you finish the list.
