Here is the answer,

A stored procedure is a named group of SQL statements that have been previously created and stored in the server database. Stored procedures accept input parameters so that a single procedure can be used over the network by several clients using different input data. And when the procedure is modified, all clients automatically get the new version. Stored procedures reduce network traffic and improve performance. Stored procedures can be used to help ensure the integrity of the database.

e.g. sphelpdb, sprenamedb, sp_depends etc.

Syntax is-

CREATE PROCEDURE procedure_name
@param data_type = default_value,
@param data_type = default_value,
@param data_type = default_value

   DELETE FROM  Employees
   WHERE  EmployeeId = @EmployeeId;
