They were praying behind closed doors.
Matthew 6:6 (AMP)
6 “But when you pray, go into your most private room, close the door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees [what is done] in secret will reward you.”
Prayer is our communication tool when we want to speak to the Lord our God. We go into our private room, closing the door and then start praying. In private, we can speak our minds and hearts out before the Lord our Father. Is something heavy on your heart today? Why don’t you take this time and go into your private room? Speak earnestly to the Father; bring before Him your problems. As Christians, we have an advocate waiting to stand in the gap for us. His name is the Lord Jesus Christ. I want to encourage you today. Pray for your relationships, finances, and illness to the Lord. Believe in your soul and heart that the Lord will answer your prayers.
Prayer Father God, in faith we stand before You today, please help each of us face today, guide us and show us the way forward in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
