Gospel Reading: MT 6:7-15

In praying, do not babble like the pagans,
who think that they will be heard because of their many words.
Do not be like them.
Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

In any conversation with a stranger we will put an effort to express our views so that the other person might understand  our situation with clarity. While with friends and close acquaintances we do not do that as they already know our situation and our ways.

In today’s gospel we are told how not to pray like the pagans who speak volumes in prayer assuming it would benefit them. The Lord knows our heart. A prayer of thanksgiving and gratitude as is the case in the Lord’s Prayer is all that the Heavenly Father is looking for. Those with no gratitude are filled with anxiety about the possible losses in life that they foresee. They will pray like the pagans and benefit nothing through those prayers.

A prayer that touches God’s heart opens the floodgates of blessings. Going step by step through the Lord’s Prayer will reveal the numerous areas of our life that this prayer addresses.

How willing are we to expose every aspect of our life to Jesus through prayer? The more we do the little we will have to speak in prayer.
