Chapter 1:
Al-Fatihah " The Opening:
Revealed at Makkah: 7 verses


1:1 Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds,

1:2 The Beneficent, the Merciful,

1:3 Master of the day of Requital.

1:4 Thee do we serve and Thee do we beseech for help.

1:5 Guide us on the right path,

1:6 The path of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed favours,

1:7 Not those upon whom wrath is brought down, nor those who go astray.
The Holy Quran 29:19-20

See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.

Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.

The first of Surah (chapter) of The Holy Quran. This is actually a prayer. Here Allah has taught human beings the correct words with which to seek God's guidance and salvation. It is said that the rest of the Quran is an answer to the prayer in this Surah.
The Holy Quran 29:19-20

So these first three are calling upon him and being greatful?

1:4 Thee do we serve and Thee do we beseech for help.

1:5 Guide us on the right path,
asking for help?

1:6 The path of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed favours,

1:7 Not those upon whom wrath is brought down, nor those who go astray.
asking for guidance for your self and others?

That looks like an appropriate explanation.

There can be an alternative way of looking at it. One good way to pray to God can be, we first praise Allah and express our thanks. Then we ask what we need. In verses 1-3 we are praising Allah. In verses 5-7, we are asking for guidance and help. Verse 4 provides a neat bridge between the two parts.
The Holy Quran 29:19-20
