Verse of the Day: Pray To Your Father in Secret and He Will Reward You Openly –Matthew 6:6
“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” –Matt. 6:6.
You never have to worry about God not hearing your prayer. He is with you wherever you are – and He will never leave you. St. Matthew the evangelist left us a most valuable, yet simple, piece of divine Wisdom. When we wish to speak with God – when we need to pray – we are told to go into our room and shut the door behind us. There is no need for loud proclamations or to tell your woes to anyone and everyone who will listen. Instead, go discreetly before God. Kneel before Him in honor and humility and pray. Rest assured that when you do, your Father Who sees your faith in secret will reward your faith openly (v 6). Seeing then what the good Lord has done for you, they too will proclaim that He is true; He is good; and He is faithful to deliver.
