Are our prayers concerned with the coming/increasing of God’s kingdom on earth? Do we think and pray globally?
Do we ask for the Holy Spirit? How can we even begin to understand His Word, which is spiritually discerned, without His Spirit teaching us? How can we bear the fruits of the Spirit without the Spirit?
When we ask for something, is it to the end that God’s name would be glorified or do we just want to be stronger, richer, feel better, be more comfortable, etc. for our own sakes? Do we treat God like a Genie in a bottle? Or is the heart-cry of our prayers as we lay our requests before Him that the name of our Father in heaven be hallowed?
Are we filled with praise to God in our prayers, thanking Him for who He is and what He has done?
