There is no one single way to pray as each person has their own rituals and their own things to pray for. It is also important for a person to ask forgiveness for their sins during prayer and to acknowledge the word of God. Some people find reading scriptures before prayer helpful.

Some schools and sporting teams have a specific prayer they recite together before the event. Each player, however, can also pray on their own to ask their own blessings and well-being during the game. This is also a good time for them to pray for the healing and safety of others, especially if a team member is sick or injured.

Praying can be intimidating, mainly for those who are new to the act. There is no reason for this, however, as there are no wrong or right words. When praying, the person should depend on God for guidance and ask for help with their faith and their prayers. This will comfort them and make praying easier as time goes on.
