Good habits are to be cultivated, cared for, because it is so easy to go back to bad habits. Sadness, troubles of life, things that tip us out of balance pull our souls down.
No man seeks for God. Our hearts are shortsighted, and there is nothing good therein. All this works against prayer, prayer, where we could be with the Lord.
(Lk 21:34, 22:40-46, Mt 26:38-40)
