  1. The Secret Life of Prayer Life outside the Box Matthew 6:5-8

  2. Do not pray like the hypocrites (Matthew 6:5)

  3. Matthew 5“When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get. (NLT)

  4. Their Motivation:

  5. They longed for the praise of men. Their prayer was an act. Their focus was on themselves.

  6. Daniel 6:10 But when Daniel learned that the law had been signed, he went home and knelt down as usual in his upstairs room, with its windows open toward Jerusalem. He prayed three times a day, just as he had always done, giving thanks to his God.

  7. Take time to be alone with God (Matthew 6:6)

  8. Matthew 6:6But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.

  9. It is essential to have alone time with our Lord. • God loves us more than we can imagine and He longs to spend time with us.

  10. This is a time for us to pour out our hearts to God.

  11. 1 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? 3 My tears have been my food day and night, while men say to me all day long, "Where is your God?" 4 These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go with the multitude, leading the

  12. procession to the house of God, with shouts of joy and thanksgiving among the festive throng. 5 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and 6 my God. My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan,

  13. the heights of Hermon--from Mount Mizar. 7 Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. 8 By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me-- a prayer to the God of my life. 9 I say to God my Rock, "Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?"

  14. 10 My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, "Where is your God?" 11 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. (NLT

  15. Do not babble on like the pagans • Matthew 6:7-8: 7 “When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. 8 Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!

  16. Do not use vain repetition. • God longs for true prayer that comes from the heart. • God wants us to cast all ours cares on Him, but we do not need to babble on because He knows what we need before we ask Him. • God knows what we need even before we ask.
