I'm not really sure how to answer the how part. It's just like thinking only directed towards someone else. I don't usually pray for anything other than answers. Or I just think my problems through and figure out the answers.

I pray throughout my day. I find myself praying for patience when mine is being tested and for guidance when I am having a hard time. I pray to thank God for the many blessings that I have. I pray for anyone that requests a prayer. And we say Grace before every family dinner. At night, I reflect over my day and ask God to watch over those that I love and thank Him again for all that I have.

I usually pray before I sleep and whenever I want to talk to God. I pray for peace, the health and happiness for my friends and family and myself. I pray for others to find happiness. It's sort of complicated because I pray for the betterment of others so that they can find peace too.

There are different prayers and i do several. There are prayers of thanksgiving. There are prayers of adoration. There are prayers for guidance, there are prayers to help others.

I don't know what you mean.  I just pray.  I don't get down on my knees and steeple my hands if that's what you're asking.  Sometimes, I do it silently in my head.  Sometimes, I say the Lord's Prayer out loud.  Sometimes I whisper it while I'm driving or doing yoga.  There really is no right way to pray.  It's just whatever works for you or feels right for you.  I pray for everything.  I pray for thanks.  I pray to ask God to look over my family.  Whatever enters my head can become a "conversation" with God.

Pray always, never cease ;) I pray whenever something comes into my head. I pray for the person on the side of the road who was in an accident. For the ambulance drivers zooming down the highway, for my family, for those I know are sick, for health, for thanksgiving, for those people I'm not friends with, I do get down on my knees when I'm praying with my kids at night, but it's more so I'm on their level. I pray out loud, silently, anywhere I am. Most people don't even know it's happening.

When I pray, it depends on what I'm for, who, and with scriptures. If I'm asking for something, I also thank Him for it. Most of all I close the prayer by covering it in His blood and in Jesus name. The Word says, anything you ask in His name, shall be given unto you. Not our timing, but His timing.

So, when I was a Christian (as that is how i was raised) we were taught to bow your head and fold your hands. As you are sitting before God to talk to him and He is the Almighty therefore that is respecting Him and showing complete love for God. So, that's how I prayed. My head bowed and hands together. As now I am not a Christian. I still bow my head and prostrate before him. Ask for happiness and health for first my family and then for out extended family then ask for any other prayer requests and lastly for help and understanding and patience for anything else.
