  • No there is no real way to pray you just do what comes from your heart. Its the same whether youre alone or with him, or a group. I know we hold hands when we pray.

  • That's right. You can pray silently or out loud taking turns. Mainly, just do what gemgem said, let it come from your heart. Maybe ask the Holy Spirit to guide you.

  • The point of prayer is to talk to your god(ess). No matter if you are doing this alone or in a group you just have to open yourself and let it out... Talk honestly and openly. Weather you do so aloud or quietly all that matters is that you are open. The gods know us better than we know ourselves and know what we need... They are simply waiting for us to ask.

  • There is power in prayer big or small....you can rest assured knowing that you can talk to God any where at any time in any way and He hears you. Psalm 38:15 says "In You, O Lord, do I hope; You will answer, O Lord my God. Psalm 34:4,15 I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears....The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry.

  • Just kneel, hold hands and go for it.
    No right or wrong way.

  • I believe if you pray with all your hearts, it doesn't matter. There is no wrong way.

  • Just pray believing that you'll receive an answer. That's all that is required.
