A Better Way to Pray
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.Matthew 6:5 (emphasis mine)
Be not ye therefore like unto them [heathens]: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.Matthew 6:8 (brackets added)
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
