“But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”- {Matt 6:6.} 



The passage presupposes you pray. It contrasts the hypocritical prayers, and it assures you, YOUR praying is HEARD.. and Your Father SEES YOU PRAY and REWARDS. Prayer is an eternal thing. A Loving relationship, based on trust. His trustworthiness! Prayer is our dependence upon our Father. Note, He is not called your Judge, but your FATHER and He rewards prayer according to His will. PRAYER, your prayers are an opportunity to KNOW Him as He provides HIS answer to you. Pray with confidence, knowing HE SEES YOU… HE REWARDS… what you pray in SECRET is not SECRET TO HIM who sees. The RESURRECTED LORD whom ALL Authority in Heaven and Earth has been given to is the One who encourages you to PRAY…ON…You are SEEN By the Father and He Rewards.


The temptation is to doubt Him.  To doubt He hears, doubt He cares about you. Doubt comes to your mind in the form of  questionings, accusations, such as “What’s the point in YOU praying…God doesn’t hear you…why should He answer you… it’s a fruitless exercise,…it’s stupid!” All these are to attack your faith in Him, ultimately, as in the Garden to say, God is not good, He cannot be trusted, He does not mean what He says, you need to take things into your own hands. It is an attack on your mind to attack your faith in HIM, and ultimately to slander His good Name and character, to tempt you to take His Name in vain, defame Him. Note, all  these thoughts, demonic thoughts end with the focus on “you” and not the Lord Jesus!

BEWARE and NOTE that thoughts that end with you as the means to acceptance, “worthiness” as to why God should hear, accept and answer your prayers, are not from the Holy Spirit when it comes to acceptance with God! Our only acceptance is with God through our Lord Jesus, -{Read Eph 1:6; Romans 5:1-2.}

Take comfort, when such attacks come, you know you are on the right path! Prayer at times is not easy! It is often a battle of faith! A Battle for your mind. A Battle between what you “feel, think,” versus what He has revealed of Himself in His Word! Focus on Him, Truth, His promises and not on what you “feel,” which these attacks try to tempt you to believe and in embracing lies means to reject Him and His Word and brings about instability, double-mindedness and unstable in all our ways!

Comfort yourself, talk to your-self, remind yourself of HIS PROMISE to you in this verse and remember…
