I ask God to grant me his grace during the day. I pray to him if i feel I need him to uplift me, I pray if a very told me has a need i always remember him or her in my prayers or if i forgot when i remember i ask God to remember him or her in their need. I pray in sickness. Sometimes i just meditate and talk to God on how i feel or whatever is bothering me. Sometimes i just say one word Like Give us peace in our country. or Dear Lord remember all our needs.
