The Heart in Prayer Is Most Important
Matthew 6:5, 7; Romans 8:26
When you pray, rather let your hearts be without words, than your words without a heart.

Let Us Employ Gifts Lest They Gather Rust
Matthew 25:14–30; 2 Timothy 1:6–12
Let us … remember that we ought to apply to use the gifts of God, lest, being unemployed and concealed, they gather rust. Let us also remember that we should diligently profit by them, lest they be extinguished by our slothfulness.
