How do I request an accommodation for my religious practice?

Employers must make reasonable accommodation for an employee's religious practices.
I am a member of a local church, and I recently made the decision to take steps to live more fully in accordance with my religious convictions. Among other things, I’m beginning to adopt a more modest form of dress (including covering my hair and body) and incorporating several daily prayer sessions in my schedule. One of these prayer sessions must take place at 10 a.m.; my clothing choices may also affect my work, as we have a uniform requirement that does not allow employees to wear caps or other head coverings. How should I raise these issues with my manager?
