Question:

Is it required that a Christian pray once every day? The Bible tells us to never cease to pray, but how often are we required to pray?


Answer:

The concept of not ceasing to pray refers to not give up on prayers. “Pray without ceasing” (I Thessalonians 5:17). Or as Paul told the Romans, "continuing steadfastly in prayer" (Romans 12:12).

How often we should pray is not said. We're told Daniel prayed three times one day (Daniel 6:10), but that doesn't mean it was a set amount. What you see most often is people praying as the need arises. I would think you could find things to talk with your Father in Heaven several times each day, even if all you have to mention is "thank you."
