    Prayer is for everyone.

    You don't have to believe in prayer for prayer to work. There are lots of prayer sites where people will pray for you. What have you got to lose?

    Outloud

    I pray all the time silently to myself.  I cannot bring myself to pray outloud in front of others.  I am sure this stems from being chastized as a child for chosing a different religon than my father.

    Embarrassed

    I am Christian and I attend church often but I always feel awkward when it is time to come to the podium and pray. I know we all have our different ways of talking to God but compared to preachers, I feel like my prayers are being said wrong. That is why I never pray aloud.
