04 May God’s Secret Place
When Jesus went up on the mountainside and gathered His disciples around Him, He began teaching them and the multitudes about living life in right standing with the Father. First, He taught not to be: “like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly to be seen by others” (see Day 34 above). He then taught what to do as His children: “go away by yourself, shut the door . . . pray to your Father in private” —adding that babbling on and on was NOT praying, either! It’s been said, “Prayer is the most powerful form of communication between Earth and Heaven.” Prayer, that marvelous, worshipful privilege of thanksgiving, praise, confession, supplication and intercession, is available to the Believer any and every hour of the day!
Pray, therefore like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:9-10 AMP
Prayer, a wondrous intimacy shared with Abba, Father, Who always hears and responds. Declaration: We declare, our prayers are not clouded with hypocritical thoughts and words; our hearts are pure and open to God’s will and way. In the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
