What's In Your Prayer Closet?



“But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.” (Matthew 6:6-7, NKJV)

Periodically it behooves every believer to examine his or her prayer closet. What do you pray about when you are in secret? When you pray do you: 

  • Weep for the souls of others?

  • Confess my sin and sins?

  • Search my soul for areas of pride which need humbling?

  • Search for idols that need to be sacrificed?

  • Search for and long for a proper embracing of the cross?

  • Beg for a hunger and thirst for the presence of God?
