A lot of people will say this is the proper way to pray and then others try to make it a routine. First I believe what Jesus said when he told the people how to pray. He basically taught the people to pray the Our Father.
The Lord's Prayer
1AND it came to pass, that as he was in a certain place praying, when he ceased, one of his disciples said to him: Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
2And he said to them: When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.
3Give us this day our daily bread.
4And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation.
