Vital signs- Tuesday,February 14th,2023

Prayer is not practiced in order to get attention from people, but for intimacy with God. “Shutting the door” means we have to remove distractions. God wants us to close the doors because intimacy takes place behind closed doors.

There is an example of the significance of privacy found in 1 Kings 17.

When we close the door to distractions, we are seeking privacy and intimacy with God. The goal of prayer is that the oil will flow, and the anointing, presence, and strength from God will flow. That flow occurs in your secret place. Once it flows in private, it can be a blessing publicly.

Your intimacy with God in private will produce fruit, and your fruit will speak of your intimacy. However, the most important result of intimacy is not that the fruit will speak, but that the fruit will feed others.

The posture of the heart is the most important posture in prayer. We can pray sitting, standing, kneeling, with our face to the ground, with hands lifted up, with eyes lifted to Heaven, placing the head between the knees, and even pounding the chest. God is not looking at our body posture when we pray, God is looking at our heart’s condition.

Is your heart directed towards Him?

Closing the door helps us to realign our hearts, attention, and affection to God.

“But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your

Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:6

Pray with me-

Heavenly Father, I commit to removing distractions from my life and heart when I pray. Help me to put aside all distractions to focus only on You. Holy Spirit, redirect my heart, attention, and affection towards God, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Team Wade loves you and is praying for you ❤️👊
