Hieromonk Damascene puts it this way,
"It is imperative that one put one's time in before God, every day without fail. Specific periods of watchfulness and prayer must be set aside each day, especially in the morning and evening."Elder Nikodim puts it his way:
Night prayer prepares you for prayer during the day.... Humility, awareness, repentance. 'Forgive, O Lord, me who live in the world, who bear a body, and who am enticed by the devil.' Do this unceasingly. And, whatever little thing you do, turn to God's mercy with humility. Ask forgiveness of the Lord: 'Infirm am I."
