Matthew 6:5-6 “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 the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
Isaiah 26:26 Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by.
I have written about the need of going to the alter of prayer and the need of praying with others. There is also a time to go to your secret place to pray. For some they have a room or closet in their home. I have known some they cover their heads with scarves, because they did not have a place in their homes to get a way from the others they lived with. Others get out in nature, a personal favorite for myself. No matter where this special place is for you to get alone with God, it is important that you find it and spend time with Him there. I have a problem sleeping so I spend a lot of time outside of my home talking with God. Looking up into the sky looking at the stars and the moon. I feel a special closeness to God during these times. Our prayers don’t have to be long and we don’t need to be loud. We don’t need to be seen, we just need to talk to Him, and spend that one on one time with Him.
