Question: With regards to the noble verse: “and seek help in patience and the prayer (2:45), patience was mentioned before the prayer in the verse in spite of the great station of the prayer?

Answer: [This is] because patience aids in performing the praying. The one who has no patience may not pray, may not pray regularly. The prayer requires patience, and all acts of worship require patience.
