How to Pray

I have been having a difficult time with settings requiring formal vocal prayer. In the past, I had been taught to pray in a manner that ends "In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen." I no longer believe this to be required, and in some cases, feel it is an inappropriate way to end a prayer.

My beliefs about Jesus are vague right now. I wish I had a trustworthy account of his life and teachings so that I could see more clearly how he fits in.
