dunno if it can be called praying.. it's more like conversing with a drunk at a bar except there's no bar around..

I use to a lot in the past? Well, usually before i eat, and sometimes when i go to sleep and wake up. I dont pray and ask for things its usually for thanks.. Because even if the day i had, or am going to have, regardless of the way it turns out or whatever it may be, you should always be grateful for it.

I used to have a set time for prayer (when I first converted) which was in the evening before I went to sleep and I'd ask for forgiveness for stuff I'd done wrong that day and ask God to bless the people I love and the people I don't love but want to (like people who have hurt me and stuff.) Now that I've gotten more confident with my faith, I pray wherever, whenever. And I tend pray for small things just as they come up, like I see someone struggling and I pray for them, or I see something that makes me smile and I give thanks for it. Prayer isn't always about asking for stuff, it's about talking and communicating with your God (in my point of view ofc <_<)

Interesting point: ever since I converted, I have been having dreams again and the more I pray, the more I dream.

Prayer is a communication with God.
Don't mistake it for a tradition that you HAVE to do, and in the EXACT same way.
It's a communication with God where you express all your pain and thoughts to God, and ask for what you want.
Thats what Catholic Christians believe.

I'm a YFC (Youth For Christ) chapter head, not a good one and no proper training but I expect to do better with my group soon.
I may have my doubts on how my religion goes, cause its mostly PRAY or ELSE. But as a teenager and a group leader, I make let me group know that It's always a better choice to be a better person and that God is an example for them to look for if they have no other example to look at in this life.

Don't hate me for this, just reality that not all will believe and it's you can never make people believe through threat or force, you just have to understand them and make them believe instead in a good life.

I pray to talk to God/build my relationship
with him (he's a great friend/listener)
For help, blessings, protection, etc.
It's also a great way for me to be able
to listen too, like opening up a conversation.

I love this thread and the lack of bashing that is occuring! ^_^

I pray because I want to grow in relationship with God. I want to be consistent and not lose what I already have in Him. I would not feel right if something important or difficult was going on in my life and I did not pray about it, if anything just at night before I go to bed. I often don't feel I try hard enough with my faith, but I know I couldn't do without it. And when something good happens after I have prayed, I'll be sure to be thankful about it.
