Yeshua has provided areas for all believers to consider as a prayer closet.
And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening came, he was there alone. Matthew 14:23 KJV
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
Matthew 6:5-6 KJV
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are. For they love to pray, standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.  But thou, 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 6:7 KJV
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
God is never weary of hearing the prayers of the upright but soon tired of the costly sacrifices of the wicked. He hides his eyes from their prayers, as that which he has an aversion to and is angry at. All this is to show,  That sin is very hateful to God, so hateful that it makes even men’s prayers and their religious services offensive to him  That dissembled piety is double iniquity. Hypocrisy in religion is of all things most abominable to the God of heaven. Jerome applies the passage to the Jews in Christ’s time, who pretended great zeal for the law and the temple, but made themselves and all their services abominable to God by filling their hands with the blood of Christ and his apostles, and so filling up the measure of their iniquities.
Romans 1:19-20 KJV
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen. Being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
1 Timothy 4:10,12,14,16
For, therefore, we both labour and suffer reproach. Because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, especially of those that believe.
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
Neglect not the gift that is in thee. Which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery?
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself and them that hear thee. Philippians 1:27-30
Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
And in nothing terrified by your adversaries. Which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.
For unto you, it is given in the behalf of Christ. Not only to believe in him but also to suffer for his sake;
Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
Please remember these articles are the work of a humble servant of Yeshua doing HIs bidding as a Watchmen sounding the Trumpet to warn of impending danger within the Assembly. May our Father abundantly bless each one of you with wisdom and discernment to go forward as “Modern Day Disciples.”
Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee, Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Yeshua is everlasting strength. (Isaiah 26:3-4)
