Silent Prayer

Matthew 6:6
“But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.”

Have you ever considered these words of Jesus closely? “Go to your inner room.” What is your “inner room”? It’s that place deep inside your being…where God resides. The God of the universe is waiting there to commune with you and to speak with you. But to hear the voice of your Creator you must be willing to turn off the noise of the world…find a quiet place…and simply be with God. Jesus says that we should not be like the ones who believe they will be heard because of their many words. “Your Father knows what you need before you ask him” (Matthew 6:8). God wants to give you what you truly need. Listen. God speaks in silence.
