It is necessary both for the ephemeral life but also for the eternal one to learn to begin all things with prayer, asking God for His help and entrusting to Him the result of your aspirations.
Thus it is eliminated the question : Am I doing what I should or not ? Should I start this thing or not?
If the man asks God to make him wise, God will answer either through the circumstances of life or through an advice from another person or through an inner understanding about what it should be done.
The main thing is to learn to live in such a way that you would always relate yourself to God with your mind.
