In many ways and many different times. As a Christian I believe that God is far less hung up about how we pray than why we pray. Too many Christians treat God as a cosmic vending machine, insert proper prayers get what you want. Prayer is simply communicating with God, connecting with Him in a supernatural way. So since I want to communicate everything about my life with Him I communicate in various ways, sometimes I just spend time worshiping, thinking and praising Him for who He is. Sometimes I am asking for needs, sometimes I'm just telling Him what I am feeling and thinking, some prayers are thank you prayers. And sometimes I just ask for Him to speak to me. If I am quiet and listen He does. The point of prayer is to grow closer to God. We do that by spending time with Him.
