Your Father Who Looks….

But when you pray, go into your private room and, after shutting your door, pray to your Father who is in secret. Then your Father who looks on in secret will repay you.
===============================
Another evidence that Jehovah appreciates and values our expressions of godly devotion can be seen in what the Bible says about prayer. “The prayer of the upright ones is a pleasure to [God],” noted the wise man. (Proverbs 15:8) In Jesus’ day many religious leaders prayed publicly, not out of genuine piety, but out of a desire to impress men. “They are having their reward in full,” said Jesus. “However, when you pray,” he instructed his followers, “go into your private room and, after shutting your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; then your Father who looks on in secret will repay you.”
