Prayer

Matthew 6: 5-6

5 “And whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, so that they may be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward.

6 But whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

  • How can we pray in public without being like the hypocrites?
  • What do you gain out of personal prayer in private?
