What do we know about the ways of praying?
It differs from religions. How many religions, so many different methods of praying.
I know only about Christian way, Judaism way and Muslim way.
In Christianity people pray or being lonely, or in overcrowded church. It does not matter where you are, only your heart has the sense. You just should think carefully before you begin your prayer. In this case you will be ready for the communication with God.
As for Judaism, there are many prayers there. All of them depend on where you are, what you are doing. You should know several prayers for different situations in your life. As for the place, Jews prefer to pray in groups. But if you feel the necessity to pray in loneliness, go ahead! It doesn`t matter, where you pray, God will hear you. It is also very important to know how to move your hands, your body. You should learn it first.
As for Muslims, their prayer is specific. You should first of all face to Mecca. Then you should read the Surahs. You should finish your prayer saying special words and turning your head left and then turning right and repeating the same words. Because there are angels on your shoulders, they write your good and bad acts.
After prayer you just need to concentrate and to wait for the signs from God. You should be attentive. You will understand what god is saying to you. You will understand it with your heart. So ,be attentive and do not miss the signs!
What do you know about ways of praying? Maybe in other religions. Or maybe in these ones. Are there any peculiarities? Do you know about them? What do you know about then? Le us share here. It is very interesting!

I still think that a form of prayer is not important. Left side, right side, in a group or alone, in Mecca or Jerusalem or at your own home. The other is important. How to pray deep inside.
It's difficult to learn how correctly to pray. To start with it's necessary to learn who to repent (to fill sorry) about what was done, please pay your attention that it doesn’t mean to just feeling sorry for yourself, it will only add the negative to your soul, namely it's necessary to feel sorry for actions in which you feel remorse. After it's time to move to the next stage. It's thanksgiving pray. When it's necessary to pray being gratefully to God for everything. And it is because the soul is unclean (contaminated by sins), it can not feel anything, so you need to repent for your soul to be alive (start again believe in good). Later, much later, depending on sincerity of your repentance and requests your soul itself will ask for a boon.

What really matters when people pray is their heart, how sincere they pray and ask God for forgiveness and salvation. I don’t think if you go to a church, or a mosque, or a synagogue and turn your head exactly how it is recommended by the rules or say all the right prayers it will work and really help if your heart is not with it. There is a canonized saint of the Russian Orthodox Church called Matrona. She is known as Matrona Dmitrievna Nikonova, the Blessed Eldress of Moscow and also Matrona of Moscow. There is an interesting story in her life about prayer. Her parents usually went to temple together, and one time only her mother could go and father stayed at home. He prayed in front of the icons and sang the prayers. Natalia, her mother was in a church but during the service she was distracted from praying thinking and worrying bout her husband staying at home. Then she got back home and her daughter was greeting her saying that she hasn’t been to the church. Her mom wondered how is it? She was but her husband wasn’t in the church. And Matrona was telling her that her father was in the church but mother wasn’t. So she could tell where the heart and the soul of her father and mother were during the prayer. And it is a lesson for us today because many people pray but they are somewhere in their thoughts and worries or worried about something, all these distractions are temptations making us be far from God. That’s why we should work on our heart what is inside and be focused on our relationships with God while praying not on something else.
Love and be loved!

I agrees with Pitbit
A prayer is not a request ... )
We have to talk with God like with father, frankly and from the heart and from the soul ..
Well, firstly during a prayer it's necessary to salute and to say thank!
Then you need to utter prayer Oratio Dominica ... It's very important prayer. After reading it you can talk about your personal issues .. But with the appropriate mood of soul ..
You have to rise above the vanity ..
It's necessary to pray for what is important not for the body but for the spirit. Humility, repentance ... it's great when it's cry from the heart as if you die in five minutes. It should be a fear of the Lord, and the more it feels the more is the Grace of God, the more your trust the more you get. It's very important to be fully opened to the God, because He knows who and what you are, the question is whether you know yourself.

Sure, all of you are right. There is no left side or right side. But let us look deeper in this theme. What for do we have the special poses and special words, special pray? Why did people invent the right way of pray? Where from do we know that for the pray would be clear and true we should be lonely and nobody should disturb us.
If you answer in such a way, that means, you do not take all the ways of pray seriously. Does it mean that it does not matter for you how to pray, where to pray? Do you want to say, that even staying in a crowd you just can begin to pray, speaking to somebody or eating hamburger?
I think that all the poses and the words of pray were invented not just for complexing the way of the pray itself, but for the man. Because the man cannot concentrate on his deals, what to say about his talk to God!
That is why there are specialties of how to pray: for we should concentrate and understand what we want to say, to ask, to request.
And why not to request? Why not to request God? So, to request whom? Neighbor? Mother? Father? Any person?
What for God is in the universe? I thought we can ask him whatever we dream of, whatever we want from him. It is my right as of a Christian, or Jude, or Muslim, or anybody else to pray, to ask and to request. Because most of our prays are about asking health to our family and asking some more luck to all of us.
Thus, I think, it is still important nowadays to know which pose id right and which words should be said to God.
When there is love, you can live even without happiness.

Prayer is not just a meaningless set of phrases, this is our conversation with God. If you just pray, but do not even think about the words that your are pronouncing during your pray it will not help you. The main part is that pray has to come sincerely from your heart. Repetition does not make prayer more beautiful or more efficient. However, perhaps we have to constantly repeat them, more for ourself, than for the God. And the main thing is the sincerity and truthfulness in front of yourself and God.
