7 Pray, but do not babble repetitiously as the heathen do, thinking that by their many words they will be heard.[Do not be rash with your mouth, and do not let your heart be hasty to utter anything before God. For God is in heaven, and you are upon the earth; therefore let your words be few. Ecc 5:2]
8 Do not be like them for your Father knows the things you need, even before you ask him.
|Zechariah 2:13||Psalms 46:10|
10 Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. [To be still is to humbly silence your mind so that you can hear the Word of God within your heart speak to you and become aware of His presence.]
|Proverbs 8:34 |
34 Blessed is the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Without our promises the soul is grieved; with them the soul settles down to a vigilant tribute to the Lord." To wait and watch is a tribute to the Lord; a tribute is something that you do to show that you respect and admire someone or something. To show respect and admiration for God by waiting and watching for Him is the beginning of love of God.]
