|Matthew 6:6-8 |
6 But when you pray, go to your inner room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. [Your most inner room is your heart.]
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.
