Is there a “secret” of having a life that is truly blessed? Of having a close walk with God, a true and deep spirituality, of being effective in our service, of having victory over sins, peace of conscience, of having all our needs met? No. It is no secret - Jesus shows us in our passage this morning how believers may know these things. We see three things:

  • We should pray at the beginning of each day 
  • We should pray privately, and 
  • After we have prayed, we should move forward in faith that our prayers have been heard and will be answered.

Accordingly, we are encouraged to make more use of the access that Jesus bought for us into God’s presence in prayer, and to follow the example He gives us in this passage.
