2Sarah R = "We cannot come to Christ for salvation until we recognize our need for saving. It is like they say about addiction - you cannot recover until you admit you have a problem. We cannot find relief from our addiction to sin until we admit we have a problem."
3Sarah R = "Prayer does not have to be formal and it doesn't have to sound good. Are we always formal and do we always sound good when talking to someone close to us? Prayer should be honest. Look at David's prayers in the Psalms - he questions God, expresses his frustrations with God, pleas for his petitions, and always, praises God. We can model after him."
