Prayer: What Do You Say When You Aren't Asking for Something?

As some of you may know I have recently started a small shrine to Ganesh due to a nudge and following events. However, I have a big question regarding shrines and worship.

If I am not asking Lord Ganesh for something but I still want to honor him at my little shrine what do I say? Hi, how are you? Right now I have been bringing in fresh wildflowers and changing them out as needed and occasionally lighting a candle. I put my hands together at my breastbone, elbows out and bow to his figurine without really mentally verbalizing anything. But it definately seems like something is missing from that.

My question is what do you say when you aren't actually praying for something? If you are just honoring them?
