Jesus Teaches About Prayer

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” (Matthew 6:5-8 NIV)

Do you know that praying is easy? It can also be quick and quiet. It doesn’t need to take a lot of words or time, and you don’t have to say your prayers loudly. But praying DOES need to come from your heart and be honest. Asking God for a new bike or game or lots of money is not really what prayer is about. Prayer really is learning more about God, thinking kindly, trying to see others through God’s eyes of Love.

Then, we have to believe what we’re praying. This starts with believing that God is, well, GOD, and knowing that God is Love—loving us and everyone else in the world. When we know God, when we feel deeply loved, our prayers are powerful, and they are answered.

The funny thing is that powerful prayers are not loud and long prayers. When we pray from our hearts, our words are pure and good and simple… and quiet. God answers. We may not always like the answer, but it will always be the right answer since God always has our best interest at heart.
