Thank you very much , too bad, I am in Saudi right now ,and there is no Chapel or Church here so that's why I need to pray deeply because there is no way to be connected with my faith other than prayer and the internet, The Rosary is always my favorite , but I am hoping to try something new. Thank you again for sharing your thought and prayers
That's a really an easy one to answer; for nothing is more easy than to connect oneself to God - since God is waiting for us to do so. Even if one is far off any Chapel, and doesn't own any Christian thing such as Bible, prayers-book, crucifix or rosary, and also is unable to reach Eucharist, because he lives in a anti-Christian world like in Saudi Arabia, or even in the loneliest prison, a filthy dark pit or wherever;
Jesus Christ is with him any time, as He promised in Mt 28,20: "…lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age."
So, It doesn't even matter what or which prayer we pray, for if we really do believe and therefore in our prayer are closest connected with Jesus Christ, God knows what we are trying to say and think, before we do so; as Jesus told us in Mt 6,8: "…your Father in heaven knows what you need before you ask Him".
Christian belief and to believe is easy, as our Pope Benedict pronounced so often. Let's never complicate it. Just do it and then Jesus Christ, God is with you. And He knows what you and we all think and want to say before you even start speaking to Him.
So, it's actually a redundant question "what could I pray" so many among us ponder about. Let's just speak to God as a little child does to his father. Our father understands even if our words are ever so humble. For what we actually do need, that's God's nearness, and this we own the very moment we speak to Jesus Christ, who in Gods endless love even became one of us and mixed up with us, until we murdered Him and he resurrected on Easter - only to come back to us again and judge all - according to their belief and if they searched Jesus or rejected Him.
It takes of course deeds too to obey Jesus' orders. Without deeds, our belief is nil. Deeds of love are essential to be a Christian, as well as forgiving those who sinned against us, as we learned in the Lord's Prayer. This fundamental prayer and mother of all prayers, just in case one doesn't know it, one finds in the net everywhere. The rest we can tell God in our own words. Which doesn't mean there are no great other prayers. There are countless of them, but let's mainly speak to God in our own words.
