When would I use "sembahyang" rather than "berdoa"?

That's my question, too.

The way the words have been translated here are 'berdoa' for worship and 'sembahyang' for pray. They're sort of opposites. Worshipping says "Big god in the sky, I'm unworthy, and you're so great," whereas praying says "Hey big god in the sky, I'm worthy, give me something."
