I usually pray to give thanks for all the blessings I've received and also for guidance and protection of my loved ones. I also usually pray more for other people, especially those who really need guidance and support and also those who already passed away so that they may find peace and enter the kingdom of our Lord.

I usually pray when I need the inner strength to frey off the temptations that the devil will always put in your path. So I guess I would say that I pray for inner strength, not out of selfishness but to make myself a better. I not only pray for myself but for others, everytime I pray, whic is almost everyday.

Thank you very much for responding to my response. Now I would like to give you a few words of advice that might increase your earnings on MyLot. Make sure that your responses are atleast four lines long or you will not get any credit for it. Just take a second or two to be a little creative and you will find that four lines is easy. (Read the MyLot rules and it will tell you about the rules for getting credits for posting. Good Luck!!

Life makes me want to pray!!! I pray when I am happy, and want to give thanks, I pray when I'm sad, scared, angry or depressed to ask for guidence, I pray when I want God to watch over someone else, and I pray just to let God know how I feel about life in general.

I never meant anything.It is a simple question.I know many people praying in a hurry out of habit,some people praying only when they are in need of something,some people praying fanatically and there are people like you too who pray sincerely believing in the great Lord ,for the beautiful things He has given and for the welfare of the entire humankind.I believe in God too.

Usually, it's confusion and fear. I pray whenever I don't know what to do and when I'm doubting my feelings. But I do pray every night to thank HIM for everything.

I pray to end up my day peacefully. I pray to God for comfort when I'm feeling down and I need solace. I pray when I'm happy to thank Him for a wonderful moment be it as simple as seeing my family healthy and happy or thanking Him for my beautiful, healthy and wonderful children. I pray to God for guidance on decision making, I pray for healing when someone is sick physically, emotionally or spiritually. I pray for peace. I pray just anything under the sun that gets into my mind, it's my way of communing with God specially when I need peace and solitude:)

Faith. Plain and simple, mostly for family. I think that prayer is good for you even if you don't believe, its good to have some kind of belief.

i do not pray out of habit .and i never pray for myself.i only pray for my near and dear ones.i think what god gives us is not cause of our prayer but cause of what we deserve.
