Matthew 6:7-8
“In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”

Just before today’s scripture verse…Jesus told His followers to go to their “inner room” and pray to God “in secret.” He further emphasizes His point by telling them “do not babble” with many words. God already knows what we need. The question is…do we? We all want things but only God knows what we truly need. Jesus goes on to tell His followers to pray to God that “your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.” God wants the best for us now…right here on earth. It’s not a waiting game for a big pay-off or reward in the future. God wants to be with us and transform us now. So why not simply sit in the silent Presence of our Loving Creator and say, “Not my will…but Yours be done.” Listen. God speaks in the silence of your heart!
