Matthew 6:5-7 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

How to Pray

“Whenever you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites, because they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by people. I assure you: They’ve got their reward! But when you pray, go into your private room, shut your door, and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.[a] When you pray, don’t babble like the idolaters,[b] since they imagine they’ll be heard for their many words.
