  • I pray before I even get out of bed in the morning. Just thanking God for giving me another day in His beautiful world. I start with just "Dear Heavenly Father",and go from there. I pray as often through the day as I feel. If I see a prayer request on here, I'll stop and pray,and I end every night with thanking God for the day.

  • I hope it's alright that I answer since I'm not christian but I say a morning prayer every morning and I begin with

  • I think I live in a constant state of prayer..or communication with God.


     It doesn't begin with "Our Father"...it is just an on going conversation ...with my father.


    And...sometimes it is a scream..."oh LORD...! ...with 2 very active boys....I am never too far from a prayer of safety or peace! LOL


    I do pray 'formally' also...and I like to end my prayer with 'in Jesus' name!.


    ..I also include a prayer of protection. Where I say...please protect this prayer..in Jesus' name. Satan is a tricky fellow....We must always...ALWAYS use Jesus as our shield and fortress!


    I hope that answers your question.

  • This is the typical way that I pray:

    I begin with: Father in Heaven or Heavenly Father
    Then I give thanks for anything and everything I feel that I need to give thanks for
    If there is anything I need help with or anything I would like to ask, that follows
    I close: In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

    If I'm praying over food then I pretty much follow the same pattern, but ask for a blessing on the food and for the person or persons that might have prepared it.

    There is not a set amount of times you can pray or have to pray during a day, you can do it as much as you want. Some days I may pray all day if I"m having a particularly hard time with something that day. I at least always try to say a morning and evening prayer and a blessing on dinner. These days I'm getting a few more in because we're teaching my 18 month old son and he wants to say prayer all the time! He's very thankful I guess! LOL!
