3 Nephi 13:5-15 After this Manner Pray Ye

In the church we often teach that there are 4 steps to prayer. What are they? (Address Heavenly Father, express gratitude, ask, close in the name of Jesus Christ, amen). Take the time to go over these steps with younger children. Older children too if you think they may need a refresher. How does the Lord's prayer in these verses compare to that 4 step pattern?

Should we use this exact prayer every time we pray? What is a "vain repetition?" Why should we pray in secret? Why then do we pray at church meetings? Why should we forgive others? If God knows what we need before we ask Him, why do we pray?
