on prayer

"I see that unless I keep up short prayer every day throughout the whole day, at intervals, I lose the spirit of prayer. I would never lose sight, any hour of the Lamb in the midst of the throne, and if I have this sight I shall be able to pray.
Why is there so little forethought in the laying out of time and employment, so as secure a large portion of each day for prayer? Why is there so much speaking, yet so little prayer?
Why Is there so much running to and fro to meetings, conventions, fellowship gatherings and yet so little time for prayer'?
Brethren, why so many meetings with our fellow men and so few meetings with God?"
