What does 'prayer' mean to you?

I'm holding a Yoga workshop this weekend and will be looking at the idea of PRAYER in yoga.
Meditation. Chanting. Higher Power. Love.
What does PRAYER mean to you?
Do you pray? How do you pray? Why do you? Anything.. everything.. pls share your thoughts and ideas : )
PS - I love that as I was about to post this I read a post from Kris over at Total Health Yoga about this very idea!! THANKS!

Wow. Interesting question. I had to think about it for a while.

I do pray, but I don't pray in the traditional sense. Thinking further on this, I pray to give thanks. To pray *for* something seems selfish to me now.

So my practice has become my prayer - usually one of gratitude/thanks. I always give a silent and verbal thanks at the end of a session, thanking the students for joining me that day or thanking the teacher for leading.

The few times I've meditated (I'm still working on incorporating that into my life; so hard for me to sit still...then the foot falls asleep...), I've tried to be postive and thankful, to give blessings to those who need it.

I might have to think on this some more, but that's the jist of it.
