"The first thing to know is this: It is our duty to pray because God has commanded it. We were told in the Second Commandment, "You shall not take God's name in vain." Thereby we are required to praise the holy name and pray or call upon it in every need. For to call upon it is nothing else than to pray." Martin Luther, Large Catechism
