First, be worshipping God on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Worship God when you eat that bowl of cheerios in the morning, when you are commuting to work, when you are mowing the lawn, etc. (I Corinthians 10:31)
Second, pray that you will be ready to receive what God will give you. How does God speak to us on Sundays? Through music, prayer, sermons, conversations. Pray that God will help you receive what He has to say. Think about the passage to be preached, read it, study it, pray about it, meditate on it, etc.
Third, pray that God will enable you to respond rightly to what you heard taught. When God speaks, we are to respond (Isaiah 6:1-8).
Fourth, think of how you are going to edify someone else (I Corinthians 14:26). Who will you speak to and what will you say? Are you going to bring someone close to Christ through your conversation? Think of who in your congregation will be in need of encouragement.
Fifth, get enough rest. Sunday morning starts Saturday night
Sixth, prepare your heart as much as you are able for corporate worship. Keep the morning as stress-free as possible. Listen to worship-aspiring music.
