Setting Up Your Prayer Closet

Prayer Closets Title Graphic

What you do in public don’t matter!

This world is getting more and more wicked by the day. Sometimes when we attend church we discover that it’s really just a low-cost fashion show. People show up to see what others look like, and sometimes we come to show off how good the Lord has been right? Doubtful, (laughing as I write this). But God has stated that our walk with him is a private thing. Have we not learned from the Pharisee?

Prayer Closets as Secure as Safes
Prayer Closet’s can be as secure as safes when we trust heaven with our prayers!

And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites.[a] So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings [b]for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.”

Luke 21:1-4

So if our walk is a private one, how can we get closer to God in private. I love the thought of prayer closets. The idea of prayer closets comes from the Bible, found in Matthew 6:6

 “But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”

Matthew 6:6

So if we are to go in secret, I think it’s good to develop a place where you can go in with prayer. Some people live in big houses and some in small apartments. For me I have a chair in my living room because I and my wife spend most of our time in our bedroom, so I know if I Go in there in the middle of the night or even earlier in the day she probably will not intrude unless she needs something for me. It’s a place I can go into the spirit and begin to lift up God.

Saint’s I challenge you this week to find your quiet space and then begin to lift up God, enjoy the Holy Ghost. Sometimes we must be patient with the Lord. Sometimes I fall asleep in doing this. But I’m human and I’m working on being better. But take time and just wait on God. Worship the Lord and still your soul, as you still your soul and lift up the Lord you can begin to hear from heaven. Next Tuesday I will be talking about waiting on the Lord on the new series we are calling Tactical Tuesdays! Let’s get ready to go to war! Get your prayer closets ready!
