"When you pray, enter into the closet, and when you have shut the door, pray to your Father, which is in secret and your Father, who sees in secret, shall reward you openly."
- Matthew 6:6
 
We can pray anywhere. Peter prayed on the housetop; Paul prayed in prison; Daniel in the lion's den; Jonah in the stomach of the fish. As we hurry to your work this morning, as you toil in the factory, as you perform the routine duties in the office, as you stand behind the sales counter, your heart can go out to God in true devotion.

But it is well to have a little nook somewhere, a spot especially adapted to prayer. There is help in that, Isaac went out into the field to meditate, Daniel had his place where, upon return from the excitement of political life, he could kneel down and commune with God. Our LORD had His mountain peaks where He could have undisturbed fellowship with God in prayer.
 
Christian friends, your are certainly incouraged to tell our heavenly Father everything that in on your heart, even such things as you would not feel free to reveal to your closest friends, like your heartaches, plans, and aspirations. But you are not to do all the talking. A conversation is a two-way communication. In quiet meditation you ought to let God  speak to you in His Word. It is in these moments He will guide and direct you with new thoughts, new impulses, new creative thinking. The heavenly Father will reward you openly. To others it will become evident that you have contact with a dynamic power.
 
      Oh, help me, LORD, to take the time
      To set all else aside,
      That in the secret place of prayer
      I may with You abide.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - One secret of effective prayer is prayer in secret.
