Read John Bunyan's definition of prayer.
"Prayer is a sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of the soul to God, through Christ, in the strength and assistance of the Holy Spirit, for such things as God has promised, or according to His word, for the good of the church, with submission of faith to the will of God." --John Bunyan
That's a mouthful!
