Matthew 6:6 www.davidaucoin.com
But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
This verse is one that I can truly say that I do. I do pray in a private place in my home and pray strictly to God and no one else. Now do I believe it is ok to pray out loud in our congregation absolutely yes. We pray with wisdom.
We don’t go around just spilling out a bunch of christianie words in the mall screaming at the top of our voice and trying to make people believe we are better than they are. No we are humble when we pray and also wise in our walk with God Knowing when we pray in a private place on a consistent basis we will be heard. We take reverence and thank the Lord that we have such a privileged.
I will take these verses with me today:
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
I give thanks for the open door God gives us at any time we ask.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them].
Sometimes I think I doubt God’s promise to answer my prayers but did I really have the faith the faith to wait with patients as I should?
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
Let me state my prayer with faith and then turn it over to his plan for my life. He will answer the way he chooses.
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
So when I go into my room to pray let me approach boldly the throne of grace but yet with a humble attitude.

Quote for my day:
Holiness of heart and life. This is not the perfection of the human nature, but the holiness of the divine nature dwelling within.
