“But when you pray, go into your private room, shut your door, and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” Matthew 6:6 HCSB
The movie “War Room” was a story about the power of prayer. One of the main characters in the movie was an elderly woman who had a prayer closet in her home. Its walls were papered with sheets of prayer requests for her family and friends. She would faithfully go into her closet and pray to the Lord. Through a series of circumstances, she challenged a younger lady to take her requests to the Lord. The younger woman took all of her clothes out of her own closet and turned it into a prayer room where she began praying for her husband, her marriage, and her family.
Jesus challenged His disciples to take their requests to the Lord in secret rather than through loud public prayers. God the Father is always present and hears our prayers. He wants to hear prayer requests that come from our hearts. He may not answer our prayers exactly the way we desire, but He will always do what is best for us.
Challenge: Take your prayer requests to the Lord. God wants to hear your requests. Always pray for God’s will to be done in every situation. Consider selecting a special place in your home to devote to your private prayers. Watch the movie “War Room”.
