But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
—Matthew 6:6 NIV
Seek time alone with God. In your time of heart-surrender, you shall find one-on-one spirit communion with the Lord, who brings down walls, and changes the lives of those for whom you plead mercy. There on your knees you discover the humble service of prayer that changes the world. You will see the hand of God touch lives, realize miracles happen, and know lives have been changed. Every time that you bow on your knees in prayer, heaven rejoices, and hell shakes. There is great power in the prayer of one who surrenders his heart to the Lord in prayer.
What is wrong in the world, in your country, with its leadership, and with its people? Make these concerns the cry of your heart. What is it you see in another person's life that is destroying him? Make it the cry of your heart. Allow all the things that break your heart to drive you to your knees.
“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence,” the writer to the Hebrews declares, “so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Hebrews 4:16, NIV). It is on your knees you learn the heart of Jesus that not only reaches others, but changes you.
