“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.” (NIV)
Did you notice that it says “when you pray”, not “if”. Prayer is not an option for a Christian. Some people love to pray in public so others can see how holy they are, and some won’t pray publicly because they wish to appear humble. What do you need to do about your public prayer life so that your prayers focus upon God and not upon you?
