How do you pray?

hi people,
hope y'all had a nice weekend? As for me I rested and took time to Thank GOD for all the wonderful things he's done and will continue to do for us.

I’ve always wondered how other people pray to God, do they only pray for blessings, victory against their (enemies), promotion in their jobs, more money ..., the list is endless, but my people God is Good o cos i wonder how long His to-do-list is and yet He attends to all of our needs (but at his own time), after all He knows whats best for us.

but guys just imagine; What if God is a man (lets call him Mr. A), and everyday we all queue up with one request or the other, y'know from the important ones to the outrageous ones (yes o, some people ask God for funny stuffs), and after your request has been granted, you don't remember to queue up again to say Thank you Sir; how do you think Mr. A will feel. I’m sure if it continues for some weeks (assuming Mr.A is very patient), He will stop giving us things free of charge.:)

So i'm cultivating the habit of saying Thank you to God for all the things he's done for me starting 4rm 2day to sunday without asking for anything in return after all He is our father and He knows we want.
You too can join me in saying a big THANK YOU to HIM.

how do i pray?
i have a conversation wt God
i never 4get to thank Him for everything
when i have a problem, we discuss it together.
when I'm in a fix, we talk

people have different ways of praying

i learnt how to have a conversation wt God after reading Ascent To Hell, by Andrew M. Greeley.

How do i pray?

Basically I just get into a gist/conversation with him.
Sometimes I hail him, sometimes i cry to him, sometimes I just gist him bout hw my day went, it all depends.
As long as am tuking to/with him its praying.
