Mental worship…

  • What most often motivates you to pray: fear, need or understanding?
  • Do you do anything outwardly to reveal to God what you are feeling on the inside?
  • Is your awareness of your sin general or specific and are you aware of the difference this makes?
  • Do your prayers demonstrate that you understand what God is capable of?
  • How will this morning affect or inform your prayers?
