“ And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut your door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And you Father who sees in secret will reward you.”(Matthew 6: 5&6)

Father help us be mindful of the time we need to spend privately with you each day.

Yours in Christ,
