A method for praying

Salam,

Falling prostrate is a mental and physical activity. i use a method for praying, and i know it's neither the ritualistic namaz nor the Qur'anic Salaat. These verses of the Qur'an i have memorized:

27:19 ... "My Lord! Enable me to be grateful for your blessings upon me and my parents. Enable me to work for the betterment of humanity and thus achieve your Approval. Include me, by Your grace, among your righteous servants."

26:83 My Lord! Grant me wisdom and good judgment, and unite me with the righteous.

2:286 ... (Pray), “Our Lord! Take us not to task if we forget, fall into error, or miss the mark! Our Lord! Lay not upon us a burden such as You did lay upon those who lived before us. Our Lord! Impose not on us the burdens that we have no strength to bear. Pardon us, absolve our faults, and bestow mercy on us. You are our Lord Supreme, so help us against people who oppose the truth.”

2:128 “Our Lord! Make us submissive to You and of our descendants let there be a community submissive to You. Show us the best ways to serve You and enable us to make amends. Surely, You are the Absolver of imperfections, the Merciful.

17:80 Say, “My Lord! Admit me in honor and let me depart in honor at every juncture of my life, and help me with strong support.”

29:30 He prayed, "My Lord! Help me against people who spread corruption and disorder."
...

i try to remember these verses when i prostrate. Everyone can pray in a specific way.

17:84 Say, "Everyone acts in a manner peculiar to himself. (Human beings tend to make their own rules of conduct), but your Lord is best Aware as to who has chosen the best path.
...
i wish that i'm not wrong about it, and if i'm not right please correct me ! :-)
