6 “When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 6 But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you. 7 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. 8 So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
Revelation 8:3 Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, so that he might add it to the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand.
God doesn’t want His children to try to win a best performance act in your prayer life. I have heard people in many ways, once for a real long time before a thanksgiving dinner & sometimes in ancient King James English, as if that old English language is more holy than modern English. Sometimes I hear people pray in a language I can’t understand, I wonder if that performance act is for the Lord or an individual prayer. The Holy Bible tells those who are students of His word, whose prayer God answers & who it doesn’t. When the worshiper of the church can’t hear the difference from real prayer or hypocrisy, each individual will know if the person’s prayer is answered. God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you & so do I. Sam H.
