He Who Sees

This verse from Matthew encourages me for two main reasons:

  • It reminds me that prayer is meant to be an intimate business with the Lord. Whether I am praying on my own or am in the presence of hundreds of other believers at church, the goal should be drawing nearer to Him and closer to one another.
  • While we are not be able to see God at this time (He “is in secret”), He nonetheless clearly sees me, hears me, and cares about me. This is a comfort because regardless of what my feelings tell me, I am never alone in my struggles. Further, the only One with the power to change my circumstances listens attentively, and promises to respond in the best possible way — according to His wisdom, and not mine — at precisely the right time.

Will you pray with me?

Dear Lord,

Thank You for this important reminder from Your Word. Help me to seek You earnestly each day — more than any other person, place, thing, or idea. May loving You more deeply and knowing You more intimately be the guiding desire of my heart and mind — today and always.

In Your name I pray, amen.

  1. Very well said.
    To me prayer is conversation with my closest most intimate friend but also with my supreme King with whom I respect, love and obey over all others. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  2. Prayer is a gift, we can sometimes take for granted. It is a intimate moment between God and you. God, sees through prayer your sincerity and your vulnerability.
    But remember to give God space to speak to you.
