Approaching God in Faith

I've noticed two subtle shifts in my words and emotions that affect my ability to pray in faith and receive the spirit. One is fearful panic, like the fear the apostles felt on the sea in the midst of the storm. Another is shame, hiding or cowering before God because I believe He will be displeased with me. Both attitudes block me from God.

How do you approach God? What is the feeling inside of you when you pray? Do you expect goodness, kindness and love? Do you feel hints of fear, shame, or hiding? What does it look like to approach Him in faith?
