CLOSE THE DOOR AND PRAY TO YOUR FATHER

Matthew 6:6

“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

Some days I was surrounded by villagers with so many different needs it was hard to know which people the Lord wanted me to help. So I focused on the church women.

I listened to a woman’s troubles and then visited her home to check out the situation for myself. Usually these dear saints often said things weren’t as bad as I found them to be.

Several times when I visited, one of these ladies was already on her knees praying in the privacy of her home for the situation. I knew beyond a doubt God wanted me to help.
