    Do you know when and what to pray for?

    I believe many times, people are praying prayers that have already been answered.  Answers have to be recognized and then acted upon.

    If you don't know if your prayer has been answered, don't stop.  The grace is never lost just reassigned!

    When it's night and you need light, pray to God to make things bright.

    I kinda' agree with you. Recognizing the answered prayer may be challenging when one does not know what was asked for. Gratitude is a funny thing. An example is when I was about 25 I worked diligently planning a business idea for the auto repair business. Great ambitious plans. Mission statement the whole 9 yards. I never did do it. However, one day I looked back at a lot of things.

    Conclusion or question?
    Today I work for the largest Tire & Auto Service business in San Diego County in the corporate office. So, was my prayer answered or not? I don't own the business, but I am living the dream smile

    I don't have a daily time and place to pray.  I don't even really like to pray that much, but I try to whenever I feel that I should.  I believe that who-or-whatever up there will listen whenever you need them and there is never a wrong time or place.  So, I can't say that I do know when and what to pray for, ever.  smile

    If you want your prayers answered you need to know the secrets of answered prayer.

    I pray every single day.

    I pray blessing of being health. I pray blessing to have peace in the world. I pray for the healing of those who are suffering in the world. It is in my daily prayers every single day and I do add additional prayer whenever needed or request from others to include theirs.

    I believe you should pray all the time.  You should pray to God when you are thankful for something, you should pray for someone who is sick or who has done wrong.  You should pray to God for forgiveness.  I pray to God on a daily bacis.  I pray when I a pass an accident on the road.  I pray that the people who were in the accident are ok.  There is never a right or wrong time to pray nor is there a right or wrong thing to pray for.  God is always with us. Praying to him and talking to him should be part of your daily life,  Not just when you want something,

    You may be right in what you think. In answer to your question though, there is no specific time or reason for prayer for God answers all prayer even if one prays for the same thing a thousand times over.

    I'd like to think there is no wrong time to pray. I often do it at strange times. Driving down the road, walking the dog, etc...not the typical dinner and bed type of thing. Anyhow, I also feel that prayer is to be a time of quiet. I don't ask for much ever. I think prayer is a good time to listen. Open one's mind and heart and let the truth settle in. I use prayer more for thanks than asking. I also find peace at that time and often the answers lie in the silence of my "soul".  I don't think asking for things should be as much a part of prayer as often it's used.
