This is really just talking to God. There are many Christians who have written about prayer to help us if we are new to praying. Even if you have never prayed before we would encourage you to start a soon as you can. Just talk to God as you would a loving father. Thank him for what he has done for you and who he is. Ask him to forgive you for anything that you have done wrong. Tell him about your problems. Talk to God about others and their needs. If it matters to you then it matters to God.
There are no special formulas for praying although the Bible gives us some good guidance and even Jesus gave his disciples a prayer that would help them pray (Lord’s Prayer – Link to follow).
Prayer, especially at first, doesn’t need to be for long periods of time. It is a bit like feeding a young baby - little and often is usually a good thing.
