In the Sahih hadith (as graded by Sheikh Al-Albani) from Sunan Abu Dawud, book 8, hadith 64 it was narrated by An-Nu’man ibn Bashir: The Prophet (ﷺ) said: Supplication (du’a’) is itself the worship. (He then recited:) “And your Lord said: Call on Me, I will answer you”

The Quran also mentions in Surah Ghafir ayat 40, “And your Lord says, ‘Call upon Me; I will respond to you.’ Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible.”

Without Allah nothing is possible, we must take the time and effort to remember him and call upon him.
