My personal prayers are seldom so formal as in "our Father," "thank you for..." "please bless..." "amen."
When my alarm goes off every morning, my first thought when the wheels in my head start turning is "Good morning, Father." If I had a dream or if He spoke to me that night, I will ask about it and ponder it the rest of the day/week. After I get out of bed when I say good morning, I get on my knees and express personal things or relate what I have learned in the scriptures and allow any thoughts from Him to enlighten me. After I'm done in the bathroom, I continue talking to Him about relevant things and then I get down on my knees again just before I head out the door and express more personal things. As I'm driving to work, I continue talking to Him and listening. I spend a lot more time listening, though. This continues throughout the day until at night my wife and I kneel together bedside and offer a more formal, intimate prayer. Then as I get under the covers, I express any final thoughts/questions and I say, "good night, Father." I've kept a log/journal over the years of things, which He has taught me and I have been working on finishing my personal record-a book of remembrance of all the things I have experienced in life and what the Lord has taught me and revealed to me for family members and very close friends.
