Glorify God in Your Prayer Life

Matthew 6:6 – But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

Every blog that I write this year will be built around the theme of our church this year: “For God’s Glory.” I want to start this new year with the first blog article being on one of the most important practices we have grown ever so stagnant in as believers, and is a practice where God is supremely glorified, and that is the practice of prayer.

“Those who attend prayer meetings in order to be seen of men, and are never found in the prayer closet are hypocrites.” – Charles Spurgeon

Private prayer is a test of our sincerity, the index of our spirituality, and the principle means of our growing in grace. It is the one thing that Satan seeks to prevent the most, for if he can succeed at this point, the Christian will fail in many others. I believe that as contemporary believers the “loudness and busyness” of our lives has caused us to greatly fail at this point, and in the end the only loser is us.

Can we continue to rob God of what is due Him, or continue robbing ourselves of the sweet blessing of communion with the Almighty? God is supremely glorified when we approach him with our praise, our pain, and our problems. Being in the secret place with the most High is a place of vision, a place of peace, and a place of joy. It is the place where strength is renewed, grace restored, and faith revived.

What is it that keeps us from spending this private time with God? It is our non-stop lifestyles, it is shame and guilt, it is habitual sin, it is our failure to surrender, it is feelings of inadequacy, it is all of these things and more, and let it be your resolution to make war on such things, and get back to the prayer closet!

Remember, through Christ we can approach the throne of God boldly (Eph. 3:12). He listens intently to us not because of who we are in and of ourselves, but because of who we are in Christ! He answers our prayers both positively (yes) and negatively (no) in full accordance to His will. And as He answers our prayers in accordance with His will, and as we experience the perfect comfort of His presence, and as we leave the prayer closet fully assured of His grace and mercy, God is supremely glorified. Glorify God in your prayer life.
