Not many words

"Abba Macarius taught his disciples not to use many words when they prayed; rather they should frequently stretch out their arms saying, 'Lord, as you know best and in the manner you will, have pity on me'; or when in distress, 'Help me.'"

Joseph Jungmann, Christian Prayer Through the Centuries, p. 31
