Pray Secretly

For today's memory verse, I want to share with you Matthew 6:6. The Bible say, "But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly."

In this verse we are instructed to pray secretly. When we pray we do not pray to the people around us but to our loving Father. We are not talking to the people around us but to our only wise God. Hence, there is no need for us to broadcast our prayer and to let others know that we are praying. For when we do that, we might get the glory that is due to God.

One reason I am thinking why God gave this instruction is to help us concentrate while we are praying. If we are alone and we shut the door close, there is less distraction and our mind can focus more to our God.

If we obey this, God's answer will be given to us openly and even without telling to others explicitly, they will definitely see God's reward to us.

May you have a rewarding day!
