There are many sayings today about prayer, such as: “The power of the Christian is in prayer”. I would add that a well-trained Christian with the Bible and the frequent use of prayer is in a very good direction.
Prayer should be something we do frequently, Jesus Himself said: “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation”. Definitely prayer is a weapon that every Christian must possess and at the same time it is something that we will always have a great struggle with. Remember when Jesus said to His disciples: “So you could not watch with me one hour?” (Matthew 26:40).
Many new believers ask themselves: “How to pray?”. And it is strangely that in the churches people are not taught to pray, and that is why many people make incorrect prayers before God and all this because they do not know how to pray. Did you know that in several versicles from the Bible Jesus taught us the correct way to pray? And today we are going to study an appointment where Jesus told us about prayer:
5 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.
6 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.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
