Prayer of Faith - Your own personal prayer, Pray to the Father in the Name of Jesus. John 16:23-24  "And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. 24 Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. "
Prayer of Agreement - Two or more in agreement ( Matthew 18:20 )

Petition Prayer - Binding and Loosing prayer ( 1John 14-15 , Mathew 21:22, Mark 11:24 )

But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. 7 And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.  Matthew 6: 6-7 
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Mathew 6:7 We have two admonitions from the Lord 1) Do not be hypocrites in our praying and 2) do not be like heathen the way we pray.
Those who pray with improper motives have their reward-like those who do charitable deeds with improper motives.
6:7 From the motives for praying, Jesus turned to methods of praying. Why one prays determines how one prays. Nothing is wrong with repeating prayers (26:39, 42, 44). Here Jesus was referring to the empty recitation of words.
6:9 In this manner does not mean to pray using only these words, but to pray in this way. People often reduce this prayer to empty recitation-exactly what the Lord said not to do (v. 7). The prayer is composed of six requests. The first three ask for the kingdom to come (vv. 9, 10) and the last three are for God to meet the needs of His people until the kingdom arrives. 
Jesus said the heathen think they will be heard by their gods because of their repetitious praying, some of this thinking has sifted to some Christian thinking, their lengthy and repeated calling on God. They repeat the same prayer, same phrases and words, some have this idea that if they prayed loud and long enough God could talk to hearing them. But God is not going to hear you because you pray loud or quietly. It is your faith that God hears. He hears you because you believe Him when you pray according to His Word.
Mathew7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find, knock, and it shall be opened unto you
Mathew 6:6 But thou, when thou pray, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret, and thy Father which see in secret shall reward thee openly.
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. Mark 9:23
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. II Corinthian 4:18
James 5:13-16 Is any among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praise.
:14 Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
:15 and the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, it shall be forgiven him.
:16 Confess therefore your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The supplication of a righteous man avail much in its working.
