Of a Matthew 6 study
Matthew 6:5-8 KJVS
“And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are : for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.  But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.  But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do : for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.”
The world rewards there own; we are not of this world.
Don’t act Holy, and upright because people are watching, remember we are in the flesh , we have many faults.
Remain meek and humble, pray in silence, our Heavenly Father hears you.
Do we really know what our Heavenly Father has in store for each of his children ? We pray for our Fathers will.
Some people may not understand that, and want you to pray for specific outcome. People may not understand that God’s will is the best for everyone.
1 Corinthians 13:11 KJVS
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
Vain repetitions can be like a child wanting specific outcome. I’m not saying you shouldn’t petition, but as a mature Christian you will ultimately want God’s will done no matter what. His will is the best, because He knows what’s best.
It takes time to mature as a Christian, through life lessons. We can mature by staying in Gods Truth.
Worry, and anxiety can cause us to really want our way. Loud praying, and praying in groups may be fine, but God’s will rules all situations. As you grow , you may fine yourself praying for comfort and acceptance of His will instead of demands.
Maturity in your Spiritual life is asking for God’s will be done.
Vain repetition is not needed In prayer when you are brought to that understanding.
Matthew 6:8 KJVS
“Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.”
If you desire to love, and serve Him daily In Jesus name ; He will take care of you . You will not it any other way .
His will not ours 🙂
