It depends on what you make of it.
Is it a 5-10 minute of ‘asking’?
A 30 seconds of a greeting ‘Hi, How are You, Bye & Thank you’?
or is it a thanksgiving to another day of your life HE has blessed you with?
I’m not the most prayerful person you’ll find around, I say the basic amount of prayers required [when I wake up in the morning, before bed at night, after communion at mass & when in trouble] – nothing too long, nothing to fancy – just the regular, a prayer for the well being of my family members, friends and I’d throw a few other special intentions as well [none of them being personal]
I do not believe in praying for myself.
I am probably the last person who should be talking about praying, since I do the bare minimum myself. That said, prayers do help, if not get what you have asked for, what it definitely does – it gives one peace once you’ve prayed. It works as a calming effect on the mind and soul not to mention the body as a whole. You’re a different person on the other side of a prayer.
So, let us not wait for a reason to say a prayer, say one when you’re taking that evening walk or driving your car. It doesn’t have to be said aloud to be heard, not very long or grammatically correct. God isn’t looking for all that, all HE wants is a connection, a private connection – Just YOU and HIM.
“When we pray for others, God listens to you and blessed them. So when you are safe and happy, remember that someone is praying for you.”
