Pray to God anywhere and anytime, privately or communally, by talking to God with everyday words in your mind or out loud. For prayer to be most effective, you should feel a sincere desire to talk to God.
Hindu, Christian, Jewish and Islamic prayers include asking God for what you need and giving him thanks. Hindu prayers include meditation and focus on peace. Jesus taught Christians to pray in private and to be brief because God already knows what you need. Jews pray regularly and in groups, but prayers are individualized. Muslims pray five times a day with specific prayers and gestures.
