Life Questions – Prayer
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read Matthew 6:1-18 and think about the following:
1. (v6) Where is your prayer room?
2. What shape helps you in prayer?
3. Where does fasting fit into your spirituality?

Lord, thank you we are able to spend time in conversation with you. Thank you that you always listen to us and we can bring our joys and concerns to you, whether they are very small, or seem too big for us to handle. Thank you that you are always there and know what we need; and that you love to lavish us with gifts, and answers to prayer, whatever form that may take! Amen.
