Prayer is the act of attempting to communicate, commonly with a sequence of words, with a deity or spirit for the purpose of worshipping, requesting guidance, requesting assistance, confessing sins or to express one's thoughts and emotions.
An invocation may take the form of:
Supplication or prayer.
A form of possession.
Command or conjuration.
Self-identification with certain spirits
