Context Readings

The Sermon On The Mount: How To Pray

4 So that your charity may be secret; and your Father, who sees what is in secret, will recompense you. 5  And, when you pray, you are not to behave as hypocrites do. They like to pray standing in the Synagogues and at the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. There, I tell you, is their reward! 6 But, when one of you prays, let him go into his own room, shut the door, and pray to his Father who dwells in secret; and his Father, who sees what is secret, will recompense him.
