In the Secret Place

Jesus promised that God our Father will respond to our prayers. He said, "Pray to your Father who is in the secret place, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly" (Matthew 6:6). That's a promise for all who pray in the secret place. It's a sure promise that God will meet you in the secret place and respond to your prayers.

Remember, you have a Father in heaven who loves you. He wants to listen to you, as you open your heart to Him. Your heart is the secret place where God meets you. He knows your thoughts, desires and emotions. Pray about what's on your heart.

Prayer is an intimate personal relationship with God our Father. There are times to pray with others. Yet, there should always be those times to pray alone with God. Prayer is a daily relationship with God in the secret place.

Prayer is not an art nor a science. It's a relationship. It's all about your heart's relationship with God in Christ. God wants to have fellowship with you, because He loves you. That fellowship is called prayer. In prayer, you talk to God. You listen to Him in the secret place. 

Doubt says, "I'm not sure that I know how to pray. I don't know the right words." Faith says, "God will listen to what's on my heart, because He loves and cares for me. He's my Father." That's fellowship with God in prayer. Your Father will meet you in the secret place.
