You can never pray too much. I find myself most at peace when my prayers are consistent and more distressed when there not. The devil wants us to be focused on this world instead of God. Once we remember God is in control even when we see "bad things"( there not bad in the grand scheme we just don't understand God's infinite wisdom) we will not go through the emotional roller coaster of those with no faith. Ease or hardship both are tests and both should draw us near to Him.
