Using the bathroom prior to prayer

Using the bathroom prior to prayer:[1]

After getting dressed [prior to prayer] one should check if he needs to use the bathroom, in order so he does not need to go to the bathroom in the middle of prayer. The Sages[2] said that anyone who wants to accept the yolk of heaven in a complete manner is to use the bathroom [if needed] and then wash and pray.[3]
