SECRET PRAYER


The root of the tree produces the large and fruitful
branches of the tree that is seen by all, but the root
is unseen. That is how our prayer life should be. The
deeper and more wide spread the root, the more
elegant and fruitful the tree. How can you get your
unseen root of prayer deeper and more widespread?
Do it by not praying from the lips and memory, but
from the soul.

Heavenly Father, we ask for your forgiveness and
mercy that we neglect the prayer life you have
designed and desired for us. Help us to make our
selves less busy and more drawn to come to our
secret place of prayer so that we may know You
more. In Jesus' name.


Read Matthew 6:6


"But when you pray, go into your room, close the
door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.
Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret,
will reward you." (NIV)


"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."
(KJV)
