A grateful person, when stuck in tough or hard situations, is patient and prays. He looks for the hidden blessings in every situation, and is thankful that the situation is not worse. An ungrateful person has victim-hood mentality, and may even pray for his death or commit suicide when the going gets tough.
Uttering words of glorification is a great act of worship by itself; such act should be coming from the heart while our tongues are firmly establishing the words out. One must reflect on each act done in prayer, wither it was a position the movement to the next position or the uttered words once settled in the position of worship in prayer, for this specific reason, moderation in pace and stillness of movement in prayer comes as a pillar that help us achieve what we seek in our prayers.
