What should my attitude be in prayer? How to pray.

Prayer is communication with God, requiring neither wisdom nor experience. The weakest believer, like a simple child, can talk to the heavenly Father. As you commune with God in prayer, thank Him in advance for answering your prayers. Let Him know that you are confident that He will answer you according to His will. Praise Him for who He is, for what He has done for you , and for what He is going to do in the future. - Elmer Towns
