  1. 1. Matthew 6:5-6a And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, Who is unseen. www.networkbible.org
  2. 2. Matthew 6:6b-8 Then your Father, Who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.

  7. 7. Prayer is RELATIONSHIP over RITUAL Prayer is not about INFORMING God of what He doesn’t already know, but connecting our HEARTS to His.
  8. 8. Prayer is about God’s WILL over our OWN Prayer is not seeking to bend God to our will, but TRUSTING God with His If you desire to grow in godliness, then prayer needs to be about more than appearances, or seeking what you want; it must be about DEVELOPING INTIMACY with your heavenly Father…
  9. 9. Please take a moment to fill out your Communication Card My Next Step Today is to: ( ) Do the home life help (in bulletin) ( ) Evaluate my prayer life ( ) Examine if my faith is lived out more before people or for God ( ) Spend more time meeting with God in private (worship, study, prayer, etc.) ( ) Meditate on how Matt. 6:9-13 is both a model prayer and a model for prayer ( ) Other________________________
