Is There a Right Way to Pray


     I remember as a kid in church growing up that when the adults would pray during church it sounded so different than the way they would normally talk to me or my parents. It just seemed special or like a speech. As I have grown up I've never been called upon to pray in church so I can't say that I would pray any differently than I do when I'm alone or with family. This had me thinking though. Is there a correct way to pray to God.

     The bible mentions that the best way for God to hear your prayers is to come to him and ask for repentance and humble yourself before starting. 
"Because thine heart was tender, and thou didst humble thyself before God, when thou heardest his words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and humbledst thyself before me, and didst rend thy clothes, and weep before me; I have even heard thee also, saith the Lord" -  2 Chronicles 34:27 KJV
     Some people also say it's good to pray in the morning to start your day off. Which is a good idea but if you don't and decide to do it later on in the day it will not effect God in any way as he will still listen to you. In the bible, it also says that you can pray about anything and also remember to be thankful when you pray.
"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."Philippians 4:6‭-‬7 KJV
     In conclusion there is no proper way to pray as long as you ask for forgiveness of sins and have an open and thankful heart. God will listen. If you would like to see an example of a prayer that was given in the bible you can read: 
"After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.   Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in 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, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."Matthew 6:9‭-‬13
