Matthew 6:6 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. (NIV)

Habakkuk 2:20 20 The Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him. (NIV)

There are many reasons we don’t hear God.  We have unconfessed sin, unforgiveness, anger.  We are surrounded by noise.  We are continually thinking and planning and worrying.  God says for us to go into our room or closet, close the door and have our conversation with Him.  Most of us are afraid of silence.  We can’t still our thoughts.  We don’t want to think about the things that bother us.  It takes time and practice to learn and be comfortable in silence.  Once we learn, it is beyond my ability to describe the peace and the feelings that envelop us in the silence.  As we are enveloped, we begin to hear the still, soft voice of our Father.  As we do this, we find we seek our prayer closet more and more.  It is so worth the effort and discipline.  Let us go into our special prayer “closets” regularly.  Let us be still and experience and know our Father God.
