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. Matthew 6:6
When working full-time…the “water closet” was a sanctuary. Even working at home I find the basement or a closed door helpful to keep distractions away.
“Child of God! Listen to your Teacher!… Do not think about how much you have to give to God, but about how much He wants to give to you. Just place yourself before His face and look up into it. Think of His wonderful tender, concerned love…. The blessing of the closet does not depend on the strong or fervent feeling with which I pray, but on the love and power of the Father to Whom I there entrust my needs.”
A relationship with God is not all about serving like Martha – we must also experience His presence as Mary did.
