Prayers may not be needed. If you lead a good life, with good deeds, & good human values, your life itself is a prayer.
But most of us actually pray. Prayers could be motivated by either hope or fear. We hope or want something, so we pray. We fear something, so we start praying.
But in reality the highest prayer is neither your hope nor your fear. It is in actuality a prayer of gratitude. When you feel thankful for all things happening to you, & you express gratitude. Gratitude is the highest prayer.
Pray for gratitude !
