5 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites.
For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men.
Truly I tell you, they already have their full reward.
6 But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is seen.
And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
We can spend this quarantine complaining about it.
But we can also use this time for deepening our intimacy with Jesus.
Jesus tells us today that we should go into our room and close the door and
pray in secret.
What is the purpose of prayer?
To love the Father, and to be loved by Him.
What is the purpose of loving the Father?
It is the purpose in and of itself.
However, there is a natural result of loving the Father and being loved by Him.
We will be able to forgive those who sin against us.
We will be able to love even our enemies.
That is the result of true prayer.
Those who pray makes peace.
During this quarantine, let us deepen our relationship with God
and be peacemakers.
