Matthew 6:6 (NKJV): But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

Jesus wants us to come Speak to Him in Private. Why? Because it’s there that we can be honest about what we need to talk about. It’s there that we can Hear from God what He needs to tell us. It’s there that we can plead for others without trying to put on a show for others.

Jesus tells us that when we go to our “prayer closets, that we should be able to pour out our hearts without having to worry what others hear. It’s there that we learn things about ourselves in regards to things that we may not have heard if we were around others. It’s there that our sins can be revealed.

He doesn’t want us to put on a “show” for God, He wants us to come and pour out our all. When we go to Him in private, it should be like we’re going to someone in confidence and talking about the real stuff going on. This is where we start to learn about being in line with God’s Desire for us.

When we go in private to talk to Him, we don’t have distractions around us. This should be a place that we can go and sit and listen to Him.

Do you have a “prayer closet”? Maybe it’s time to consider setting one up.

We will continue  be looking at the Sermon on The Mount. Although,  we need Jesus to bring us back into A Relationship with God The Father, The Sermon on The Mount deals with Heart Issues which is what we should look at when learning to have that Relationship with God.
If we are to please God, we need to allow The Holy Spirit to set us apart. We need to pursue a sinless life. We are to seek Righteousness. How do we do it? Through prayer, study, fellowship, being willing to be corrected/accountability, discipleship, and service.

It starts with Our Relationship with Jesus. If you don’t have a Relationship with Him or you need to rekindle that Relationship, do it now. Call out to Him and seek his Love and Forgiveness. It really is as hard or easy as you make it.

We should look to Him daily to seek a relationship with Him. I want to encourage you to seek Him today, if you haven’t already. If you need help, have questions or need direction in this regard, please, feel free to let me know.

Maybe today you are struggling with something. Maybe you may have found yourself not as close to The Lord as you thought. We would like to help you in this through prayer and guidance. If you find yourself in need of prayer and/or encouragement, please, feel free to call or text +1 (505) 600-1027 or email
