CCC2568 In the Old Testament, the revelation of prayer comes between the fall and the restoration of man, that is, between God’s sorrowful call to his first children: “Where are you? . . . What is this that you have done?” and the response of God’s only Son on coming into the world: “Lo, I have come to do your will, O God.”  Prayer is bound up with human history, for it is the relationship with God in historical events.

When I first read this in the Catechism of the Catholic Church it made me think, I have a history.  I am reminded how God constantly calls out to see where I am and what I am doing.   It is part of the journey to get to the place of doing the will of God.  It is a process.
