prayer is the priority

"Some... may object to the idea of consistent prayer because they’re “too busy,”... However, we will make time for things that are important.

The idea behind their explanation was that homework was that unimportant.
The idea that we are too busy to pray is insanity. What could you possibly be doing that is more important? Martin Luther saw it rightly. He once said, “I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” D.A. Carson also put it succinctly: “If you are too busy to pray, you are too busy. Cut something out.” "
