• Day 17 - Be PRAYERFUL •
“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 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. And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him" (Matthew 6:5-8).
God knows what's in our hearts already. As scripture says, he knows what we need before we ask him. So you may think then, "Why pray? What's the point if He already knows?"
When we pray, we build a relationship with Him, and develop trust in Him. We build discipline and good habits. We learn to seek Him and His counsel. We learn to wait with patience, and tarry in His presence. We learn to communicate with Him, and how He communicates with us. We learn the sound of His voice, and the movement of His Holy Spirit. We learn of His love for us.
