The powerful place of prayer

From the August 14, 2017 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


I’ve always loved this direction from our dear Master, Christ Jesus: “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” ( Matthew 6:6 ). I often go to Strong’s Concordance to find the definition of the Greek and Hebrew words from which the beautiful Shakespearean English is translated.
