Baltimore Catechism No. 2

475. What is prayer? Prayer is the lifting up of minds and hearts to God.
476. Why do we pray? we pray: first, to adore God, expressing our love and loyalty; second, to thank him for his favors; third, to obtain from him the pardon of our sins and remission of their punishment; fourth, to ask for graces and blessings for ourselves and others.
477. How should we pray? We should pray: first with attention; second with a conviction of our own helplessness and our dependence upon God; third, with a great desire for the graces we beg of Him; fourth, with loving trust in Hid goodness; fifth, with perseverance.
478. For whom should we pray? We should pray especially for ourselves, for our parents, relatives, friends, and enemies, for sinners, for the souls in purgatory, for the Pope, bishops, and priests of the Church, and for the officials of our country.
479. How do we know that God hears our prayers if we pray properly? We know that God hears our prayers if we pray properly because our Lord has promised: "If you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it to you."

487. How do we usually begin and end our prayers? We usually begin and end our prayers with the sign of the cross.
488. Why do we make the sign of the cross? We make the sign of the cross to express two important mysteries of the Christian religion, the Blessed Trinity and the Redemption.
