“Child of God! Listen to your Teacher! He tells you that when you go to private prayer your first thought must be that the Father is waiting for you there in secret. Don’t let a cold and prayerless heart keep you from the presence of the loving Father. The Lord is concerned about you the way a father is concerned about his children. Do not think about how little you have to give to God, but about how much He wants to give to you. Just place yourself before His face and look into it. Think of His wonderful, tender, concerned loved. Tell Him how sinful, cold, and dark everything is. The Father’s loving heart will give light and warmth to yours. Do what Jesus says. Just shut the door and pray to the Father in secret. Isn’t it wonderful to be able to go alone to the infinite God? Just look up and say, ‘My Father!'”  ~ Andrew Murray, With Christ In The School Of Prayer

  1. This is great, especially “…your first thought must be that the Father is waiting for you there in secret.” Don’t know why but that is beautiful to me 😉
