What is your request today? 
Are you known for being reasonable? 
Where do you experience your deepest joy?
Do you recognize yourself when you pray? Does God recognize you? 
What is your habit of and experience with prayer?
Is there anybody or anything that you are letting in that is causing you to be anxious?
