When in Secret Prayer

A husband imparts his mind most freely and fully to his wife when she is alone; and so does Christ to the believing soul.

Oh, the secret kisses,   the secret embraces,   the secret visits,   the secret whispers,   the secret cheerings,   the secret discoveries, which God gives to His people when in secret prayer.

[Thomas Brooks]

Hosea 2:14 ...  Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.

Matthew 6:6 ... But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Psalm 73:28 ... But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.

Hebrews 4:16 ... Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
