Teach Me How To Pray, Lord!
If you have never prayed before, the best way to describe prayer is that it is like talking to someone who you can see, as someone on a cell phone. The purpose of prayer is to grow a relationship between you and God. It is your way of talking to God and asking for help in certain areas of your life, such as relationships, finances, health, wisdom, comfort, to name a few ways.
Before one starts to pray. It is wise to give God some praise and thank Him or what He has done for you recently. After you are done praying to God, make sure you take a few moments to understand what God is trying to teach you.
Anyone who believes that God hears and answers prayers can learn how to pray with minimal effort. Prayer is not meant to be something so very complicated that only a few select people can do. Still, rather it is intended for everyone to be able to communicate with our heavenly Father.
When you pray, do not only ask God to do things for you (He is not a magic genie). But when you pray, thank God for what He has already done for you and answered prayers in the past. Try to pray and listen to God, speak to you in His quiet voice with gentle nudges and your spirit’s prompting.

I pray every night, sometimes long prayers about a lot of things and a lot of people, but I don’t talk about it or brag about it because that’s between God and me, and I’m no better than anybody else in God’s sight. ~ Peyton Manning
Matthew 6:9-13 “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’
Prayer is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.

Billy Graham Talks About Prayer!
Prayer is directly talking to God—and the most important thing I can say about this is that God wants you to speak to Him! He loves us, and He has promised to hear us when we pray. How can you learn to pray? First, understand why prayer is possible.
Prayer is possible because Jesus Christ has removed the barrier between us and God—a barrier caused by our sins. You see, sin separates us from God, and because of that, we have no right to come before Him. But by His death on the cross, Christ paid the penalty for our sins and removed the barrier. God then gives us the privilege of coming into His presence when we commit our lives to Christ.
The Bible says, “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). If you have never done so, ask Christ to come into your life today.
Then understand that God now welcomes you into His presence and promises to hear you—and He cannot lie. The Bible says, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us” (1 John 5:14). Trust His promises and learn to bring every concern to Him in prayer.
