When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites. They love to stand in the synagogues and on the street corners and pray so people will see them. I tell you the truth, they already have their full reward. When you pray, you should go into your room and close the door and pray to your Father who cannot be seen. Your Father can see what is done in secret, and he will reward you. And when you pray, don’t be like those people who don’t know God. They continue saying things that mean nothing, thinking that God will hear them because of their many words. Don’t be like them, because your Father knows the things you need before you ask him. –Matthew 6:5-8 NCV
I’m really looking forward to our new weekend message series at Church of the Redeemer beginning this weekend on prayer. Your life will be changed as you learn how to pray your way through this new year. Don’t miss it, and invite someone to come with you!
