They pray for a time; get remiss or discouraged; restrain prayer; and thus lose all that was already wrought for and in them.

1 Kings 8:36
then hear from heaven and forgive the sin of your servants, your people Israel. Teach them the right way to live, and send rain on the land you gave your people for an inheritance.
Teach me your way, LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.
Teach me your way, LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.
I gave an account of my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees.
Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
