Matthew 6:5 (KJV): And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites [are]: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Reflection on God’s Word for Today - 16 Oct 2023
There's a lot of praying and praying competitions going on around the world today. Today's scripture makes us understand that most of the praying is merely for show and of no effect. It seems like the more people pray the less things change. And no wonder, the Bible says "they receive not, because they ask amiss to consume on their own lusts." If you are in Christ you need to understand what prayer is and how to pray effectively. Thankfully you can turn to the Bible to learn the secrets and begin to apply them as you pray. Why don't you start by aligning your desire to God's desire and pray with the motive to please Jehovah.
Pray: Lord Jesus, You teach us to pray, help me understand how to pray effectively. #Mok
