Women often come to speak to me about their dating or marital problems, and when I ask them if they're davening (praying)in their own words to enlist G-d's help, they often respond 'no'.
Hashem is our partner in life, and if we don't ask Him to help us achieve whatever we're working on, it is self-defeating. Part of hishtadlut (our effort) is prayer. Try it and see what amazing things can be accomplished!
