We prayed everyday, sometimes once a day. some as in every minute, some are when they only asked something, some when they are in deep trouble, some to say thank you. As for me, i thanked the LORD first and then asked for forgiveness. what i always asked everyday is to guide me and my family and those close to me. I asked him to protect us and then i asked to help me in every decision i make. To help me have more abundance and love. What about you, what do you usually asked the LORD?

When I pray, I thanked God first for all the trials and hardship he had given to me. All those made me a stronger person. Then I thanked him for all the blessings and the good health my family received each day. I pray for peace of mind and peace for the whole world.

yes, world peace. Some people said it a muss universe answer but this i always pray. That their will be no war, no arguments, no debates, just love and peace for everybody. For my own country that i hope people respect other religions. There will be no kidnapping, holdap and killing for the sake of money or politics.

I don't go to church regularly. But I do pray regularly. I pray every night before I go to sleep. I don't pray just because I need something or if I am in deep trouble. When I pray, I usually share any major event that happened to me that day. Then I thank Him for all that He had given me and for all the blessings. I thank Him everyday for the good life He gave me. Then I ask for forgiveness every day for any sins I made. Then I ask Him to please protect my loved ones everyday. Then I tell Him I love and trust Him. Sometimes, it is just a short prayer. At other times, my prayer can be lengthy.

same here, i dont go to church that often. Its been awhile since i attend mass. I go to church one a week sometimes not but when im there, i just prayed. i prayed when i feel like praying, not to ask for anything but just to talk to him. I just needed to talk to someone i know who will listen to me. I prayed anywhere, in the cab, bus, train or even in the bathroom.

First I ask for forgiveness for all the mistakes I made. Second, I ask God The Almighty to forgive my husband's and my mom's mistakes. Third, I ask God to give a good health to my family and protect them from any kind of danger.

I pray to God everyday, when I wake up in the morning I thank Him for another life that He has given me, for giving me another day to live to worship and give Him the glory He deserves, I thank Him for the provisions, protection and everyday blessings. Then I ask for forgivenes of everything that I've done, but I declare his faithfulness, then I will always acknowledge Jesus christ for His blood that was shed on the cross, because it sanctified me and have set me free, for it gives me the grace to live a new life. I also ask for prayer requests of my family's need, friends and my needs in that day. Lastly I ask the Holy Spirit for protection to empower me everyay and to Guide me in my decisions, to be aware of His presence and to ask for the gifts and fruits that I need to cultivate in my walk with God.

when i pray i never forget thanking and praising God with all the wonderful things and people He had given me and my family. even with the not-so good things i'm going through i also give Him thanks because i know this will make me a better and stronger person. I'm confident that He'll never allow me to go through this by myself and will never forsake me especially in my darkest moments. I always pray to God to bless and guide all the people i love, give them good health, to help them reach their dreams and aspirations, and guide them with all the trials or problems they're going through, as well as all the other people whom i watch and read on the news who are suffering and facing problems to help them and ease their burdens. for myself and my own family i always ask for good health and safety because i know from these everything else that we plan and dream for follows.

Everytime I'm praying I ask forgiveness to my sins. I thanked God for another day of our life. I always asking for guidance and protection of any kind of accidents. Most of all I ask for good health for my family and for myself. I know that I'm a sinner I always asked God to give me a longer life. I always thanking him for the life that we have now.

the moment I pray I thank the Lord first for everything because he is the creator so we need to praise and thank Him first above anything else. Then I laid everything all the problems, all your wishes and concerns especially family matters, financial matters and health as well as the things that matters to your friends as well.

My prayers of late have been more of thankfullness for the small miracles that happen each day. The birds, the trees, the air to breathe, being able to walk down the street. I pray that with the current crisis for the people we need help to find solutions for ALL the people. I pray that family members stop fighting and get on with what needs to be done. I pray that God will Bless those in need as well as those that have but still need those little miracles of moments in life. I pray that God knows he is Loved, Appreciated, and is Busy. With as many as there are on this earth, that has to be one BIG job to watch over each of us. I know the angels of his works still He is the one that Hears all the prayers of the world. I pray just to feel His love within.. To let God know that it is returned.

For me first i will thank God for all the blessing and the guidance and for today that i m still alive. And i ask for forgiveness for all the things that we have done. And then i would ask for help for the problems that i have right now. In every problems that we have every time that we pray to God it do help us smile a little but there are really times that i really do cry because of the problems that we have right now.
