Three Dimensions Of Prayer

Private prayer has its rules. One of them is the rule of secrecy and quiet. Thus it is that the Lord instructs us to seek out our "closet" when we pray. That is, we are to find a place where we can be as free from distraction as possible--not always easy in our crowded, noisy world. Satan has a vested interest in keeping us from praying That is why we experience such a struggle both in starting and in persevering with the business of prayer. God has made spiritual provision for us in the armor He has provided. When we finally "break through" we reach that place of which the hymn-writer spoke--that "place of quiet rest, near to the heart of God," where true worship and prayer begin.
