We need to pray.
With that being said......the following treasure came from the Pray the Scriptures Bible - God's Word Translation - Authentic Prayer - Simplicity.
In Matthew 6:7-9 there is reference to not ramble...God knows what you need..Jesus said not to do that....pray like this.........and He then taught His followers how with a 'simple pattern of prayer'......
1. They should worship God and declare His Holiness.
2. They should invite Him to reign in their lives and everywhere on earth.
3. They should trust Him with every real need.
4. They should voice forgiveness of others, the same mercy the Lord has shown them.
5. They should plead not to be lured into evil.
Often in circles of friends we are hesitant to be the one to pray out loud . The following teaching encourages us to "let go of our own ideas of prayer, and banish from our minds all the overblown words we have ever heard."
They encourage us to "let our prayers become what the Lord says they should be:
"Our Father in heaven, let your name be kept holy. Let your Kingdom come. Let your will be done on earth as it is done in heaven. Give us our daily bread today. Forgive us as we forgive others. Don't allow us to be tempted. Instead rescue us from the evil one."
going deeper: read the following Scriptures and pray them out loud
Matthew 6: 7-14
1 Thessalonians 4:9-12
