Alone With God

In Matthew, chapter 6, Jesus taught His followers about prayer. Verse 6a says, ?When you pray, you should go into your room and close the door. Then pray to your Father. He is there in that secret place.?
We can?t always go to a secret place when we want to pray. But when we pray, we should try to shut out the things in the world. I read about a Christian woman who had nineteen children. It was hard for her to be alone and pray. So she would sit and throw her long apron up over her head so she could be alone with God.
People do many different things when they pray. Some sit quietly, some stand, some kneel, some lie on the floor, and some dance in praise to God. No matter how we pray, we should remember that praying is talking to God. We should never pray so other people will look at us and praise us.
Sometimes when I pray, I like to pray verses from the Bible. If you use sign language, you could sign Bible verses when you pray.
Make sure that you spend some time alone with God today.
