Jesus Teaches Us To Pray (Matthew 6:5-13)

Terrel Kesterson, October 8, 2017
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Jesus says, “When you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing
in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I
say to you, they have their reward.” The Pharisees put on a public show of their praying so
people would think how pious they were. Jesus says, “They have their reward,” which, sadly,
was only that some people were impressed by them. But God isn’t impressed by outward shows
of piety. He wants our prayers to be offered by faith in Him, from our heart. When we gather
together in worship, we pray because each of us needs to, and wants to. Our prayers go from our
hearts to God’s heart.
