It’s strange why we seem to be obsessed with a secret formula for everything – Formula for success, formula for happiness, formula for weight loss and even formula for eczema cure! During Jesus’ time, his disciples wanted a formula for prayer.
Though Jesus did give his disciples a prayer to pray (Luke 11:2-4), there is really no secret formula. In fact, prayer is simply our conversation with God, and should not be a time to show-off or use empty words (as Jesus said in Matthew 6:5-8). There is no prayer specific for different occasions, it is a heartfelt request to a God who is love. Without any secret formula, God is available to all and in this tech age, the bible is free to be downloaded! It kinds of remind me to make this blog free for all too, there is no secret eczema knowledge I’m hoarding!
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.
God, I am so glad that there is no secret formula to pray. I pray that you guide me in prayer and teach me to believe!
There is no secret to Jesus (best thing in life!)
