So, how should we pray? First, let’s start with how NOT to pray:
- Don’t do it for show. Jesus said: “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men.” (Matthew 6:5)
- Don’t babble. Jesus also said: “And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like the pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.” (Matthew 6:7)
So how SHOULD we pray?
