Matt. 6, 6

I.

In one’s first broadcast over the radio one has a new feeling–he wonders if there is anybody to hear what he says.  Even so in praying it is vital questioning:  Is there anybody there?  Who is there?  Does he care?  Can he help?  The answer is far-reaching.

One in India was asked, “To whom do you pray.”  He answered, “To no one.”  “What then do you expect to realize from it?”  The reply was, “I don’t know; I hope somehow some good will come of it.”

II.

Take Jesus’ word for it:  “Pray to your Father who heareth in secret.”

“When ye pray say, ‘Our Father.’  How reassuring these words are!

(1)  He is God, Sovereign of al the forces of the universe.  He is able.  He “hearest prayer.”  He “inclines his ear unto us.”

(2)  He is our Father of infinite confession.  He yearns over us in love.  In all things he will be a Father unto us.  He cannot be indifferent to us in all our need.

(3)  When we cannot understand we can trust Him and await developments.  But if we can’t solve the mystery we can know he is our Father and loves us; he will not deny us fellowship with himself; only sin can interrupt that.
