Dunno. As far as I'm concerned, when people pray, they're thinking or speaking to an idea in their own head. It's something a great many people use to basically lessen their own responsibilities and satisfy their conscience. I mean, why actually go and help people when you can just pray for them? Ugh. Now, that said, there are people who pray and actually do things themselves as well. I just hate when people say they'll pray about it, as if that'll fix everything. Right. Rant over. Sorry.
You just have to faith
Remember god gives you what you need .
You forget the ritual prayers that separate you from God and talk to him/her the same way you would talk to anyone you respect.
Example: "Hi. Thanks for making my day so great and that awesome opportunity to learn humility. And I will try my best, but if you could help me out with ... I would really appreciate it. If you can't, I appreciate the opportunity to stand on my own feet. Love ya."
I've tried yelling. People just think you're crazy.
