Worshipfully and solemnly coming before the Lord in loving adoration, confession
for mercy, intercession
for blessings upon others, and thanksgiving for blessings received.
A prayer can be as short as asking for
one single thing, or as long as
doing all of the above.
but in everything by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God. And the
peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts
and minds through Christ Jesus.
