The question really is how do you approach your prayer with the creator of the universe? I pray first by thanking God for what HE has done, to help to guide me to do HIS perfect will for my life. I plead the Blood of Jesus over things and ask for help in areas I'm kinda weak in and protection, provision, wisdom, I bind and loose things, I read some scriptures about a situation and also I ask for more of HIS ever abounding love to flow into my life and my family to bless my family to bless the body of Christ (the body of believers who are born again) and then I thank HIM a but more and seal it in Jesus name and that's generally it.
Now back to my question how do you pray?
I've got over a dozen hubs on Christian related topics and you'll see I'm a sold out Christian. After you answer, if you like please check out my hubs.
Seems that your prayers are more or less self-serving.
Why not pray for your god to feed the starving children of the world so that we don't see tens of thousands of them dying each day? In fact, if all the billions of people on the planet got together and prayed that one prayer to their god, he would not refuse it.
Do the atheists agnostics skeptics apatheists pray for the starving children of the world?
If they don't pray for them; isn't it highly immoral of them not to pray for them.
At least ask him to kill all these mosquitoes,
Em! is it that he only kill humans?
Sometimes I start off with "Dear God", and sometimes I talk to God as if he were sitting across from me. At least I try to do that as much as I can. Sometimes I ask him to help the people I care about, other times I just simply thank him for a good day. Sometimes I ask him questions of things I'm unsure about, and wait for an answer. The answers can come from anywhere, so I have to really pay attention. I always end my prayers with "Amen", whether it was just a conversation or not.
Very good. By saying Dear God you are signifying that you are speak to HIM and by praying for others you are reaching out for loved ones and only you and God know this. By thanking HIM for good day you are trusting HM and by asking HIM for answers you know that HE is your shepherd and be ending your prayer your saying AMEN which means "so Be It". That's good. I might want to add and maybe you already do but didn't mention it and that is to say in Jesus NAME AMEN. Because as you know as a CHRISTIAN it is only through HIS name that will seal the guarantee for victory. I also would like to mention if there is an area that is really hard to over come, plead the blood of Jesus over it. Please read my hub on it if you need more insight.
Also you have a good pattern in how you pray I wanted to add that. Keep the blessing flowing.
i pray for people. i feel like i'm whispering a secret good message to the universe.
The prayer of intercession is very good. More Christians should do this more often. The Holy Spirit reminds me of this and I respond. Praying for others enables for your prayers to be answered. It shows you are selfless and sensitive for others needs. Please continue to do so.
I start with the Lord's Prayer, and then go into detail.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
I say the following prayer:
[1:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
[1:2] All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,
[1:3] The Gracious, the Merciful,
[1:4] Master of the Day of Judgment.
[1:5] Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help.
[1:6] Guide us in the right path —
[1:7] The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.

since god has already answered all prayers, it is not a matter of how to pray, but one of whicch answer do I require.
A lot of things are just provided and I need not utter a word of pray to make it happen.
so the many faithless prayers are all answered exactly according to that measure of faith .
Prayers are only for self strengthen purpose.
Parayers are heard by one who is the Creator-God of the Universe.
Jesus prayed to the Creator-God Allah YHWH right on the Cross to remove the cup of death and he said:
 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, lamma sabacthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
So the Creator-God because Jesus was a righteous person heard his prayers and saved him a cursed death on Cross; and against all odds Jesus did not die on the Cross.
The prayers are heard.
I'm not sure why you are asking this question. The disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray, He taught them, we do the same, nuff said.

eg the the people that didn't get healed when you prayed for them? Not enough faith? Hidden sin? God doesn't care? Answered prayers are really just luck anyway?
