Prayer and Faith - blind praying...

How do you know how to pray when you don't even know what the answer will look like? It is very hard.
The subject of prayer has been on my mind lately - probably because I stink at it and God is trying to work that in me. My mind wanders during long prayers at church, I don't have a solid prayer time everyday - that is disciplined and structured.
But, I have a prayer request and don't know what the answer would look like - because I see no tangible evidence of an answer to that prayer. Does anyone know what I mean?
Prayer and faith...the two have to go hand in hand. But, it is so difficult. There are a couple of things - big things in my life right now - that I have no clue what it would look like if God did answer.
Thoughts? Prayer? Faith?

I pray the Lord will direct you and give you strong impressions in your mind regarding his will.

I think prayer often is a state of mind and it seems like you are in a prayerful state of mind.

Yes, our prayers often seem dull. Mine often are too selfish, praying for my needs than the needs of others.

God bless you.
