Since being part of a new community, we were asked to pray at least 15 minutes a day. So far i have not started that yet.. I think in a day, i just spend less than 10 minutes praying. I'm not really sure what to say to my God - since each person has a different wasy of praying, i can't really ask for much advice. How about you? How much time do you spend praying?

Many years ago, I was once told that if I could count the number of times that I prayed in a day then I hadn't prayed enough. So, I don;t really count or measure the time or times when I pray. I pray often and enjoy the time I spent in prayer.

I'm not religious, I kind of just put everything on fate. the gods will do whatever they want (I'm polytheistic). And whatever happens, happens. But 10 minutes is a long time, most people don't even spend more than 2 minutes praying. My dad just used to say the same thing over and over again at dinner time prayer.
I can't count the time, I do not do ritual prayers, I speak my heart and my mind out to God the moment I wake up like a son speaks to his father, but there are also times I forget him to be honest. I also read his word daily through the bible or whenever I can.

Not enough! I've been reading a book about prayer and really, its been insightful to think about that if you have to think if you prayed enough.. you likely haven't and need to pray more so it just is a natural part of your life/day.
By reading, or listening to the Bible, we can find how God´s servants prayed.. Jesus taught us to pray, we learn a lot from him. Here is an online Bible:
