you can use like this to get payment method

protected function _prepareCollection()
         $collection = Mage::getResourceModel($this->_getCollectionClass());
         return Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Widget_Grid::_prepareCollection();
         // end here //

and in grid

 protected function _prepareColumns()

 $payments = Mage::getSingleton('payment/config')->getActiveMethods();

        $methods = array();
        foreach ($payments as $paymentCode=>$paymentModel)
                $paymentTitle = Mage::getStoreConfig('payment/'.$paymentCode.'/title');
                $methods[$paymentCode] = $paymentTitle;

        $this->addColumn('method', array(
                'header' => Mage::helper('sales')->__('Payment Method'),
                        'index' => 'method',
                        'filter_index' => 'payment.method',
                        'type'  => 'options',
                        'width' => '70px',
                        'options' => $methods,
        // End here

hope this will work for you
