How should we pray?

We all have been exposed to different praying styles. Sometimes it can be very confusing because it depends on how many variables; different denominations, cultures, personalities etc.

This topic became very important to me because I wanted to communicate with the Lord the right way.

So I went ahead and tried to find answers in the Bible. I found this recommendation from Jesus to all of us:

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. (Matthew 6:6-7) 

In other words, we don’t need to use complex or sophisticated wording when praying. There is no reason to impress our father with our language. At the end of the day, He knows what we are going to say before we even think about it. 

So keep it simple but with Faith.
