As far as Egypt was concerned I know the priests performed rituals in the temples to keep Maat and the commoners would do something outside the temple walls, and the commoners just had a small shrine inside their houses; but how did they pray and worship? This isn't just for the Egyptians btw, I'd like to know about how any peasant of the Ancient Mediterranean world worshiped and prayed to their gods. Did they join their hands and ask for stuff? Would they sing praises a certain amount of times each day? Did they offer food to the idols in their small shrine? Also, how exactly were these shrines built?
