2. If you cannot see the App Widget, please reboot your phone. This usually fixes the issue.
3. Make sure you do NOT install the App on the SD card if you want to use the Widget associated with the App. Rather, install the App on the phone itself.

In addition, our attitude in prayer is important. We must not be haughty, but humble (Ephesians 4:2; James 4:10; 1 Peter 5:6, etc.). Seen in this light, to "pray continually" (1 Thessalonians 5:17) means, in one sense, that we must always strive to have a prayerful attitude. Our prayers must come often and regularly, not from legalistic duty, but from a humble heart, realizing our dependence on God in every aspect of our lives.
The rest of the articles in this series will further explore prayer, as follows:
"Prayer Has Its Reasons" addresses questions about why we pray.
"The Availability of Prayer" explains how prayer is always available to us and, as such, is a wonderful spiritual resource we should turn to regularly, not just in times of crisis.
"Learning from the Prayer Life of Jesus" explores the many prayers of Jesus, emphasizing the Lord's Prayer, as well as some of Christ's habits of prayer and how we can learn from his example.
"Why Won't God Answer My Prayer?" This is a common question that perplexes many Christians. We'll explore answers to why God does not always answer our prayers.
"Probing the Problems of Prayer" looks at some challenges and difficulties in relation to prayer, addressing questions such as, "Should we pray for our enemies?" and "If God is sovereign, why do we need to pray?"
As we journey together in understanding the nature and purpose of prayer, it is my prayer that God will bless these words and instill a joyful and fruitful prayer life in your life and mine. Prayer can make a profound difference in our world. But it is up to us to offer our prayers humbly and regularly.
