Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 6:6 (KJV); 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.
The closet is personal to every believer.
The language of our theme scripture is, “enter into THY closet, shut THY door.”
The Bible does not tell us to enter into the closet with our spouses, children, friends or with our men and women of God.
It is your territory and is meant to be wholly occupied by you and your God. No man ever went to his closet with another man in tow.
Because this is the case, your prayer life is not dependent on that of your spouse or any other person with whom you relate. Even though it is godly to find time to pray with other people, there are places in the realm of prayer you will never reach alongside another man, you can only go alone.
Never depend on another man’s relationship with God. You must build your own through personal prayer and communion.
Today, I remind you to cultivate a personal life of prayer. It is very expensive to build a prayer life based on other men and to only burn by other people’s fires. It is costly to your destiny to pray only when others are praying. Fan your flame!

GOLDEN NUGGET: Never depend on another man’s relationship with God. You must build your own through personal prayer and communion.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the constant invitations You give me into a higher realm of prayer. I respond diligently and fervently. I have learnt the power of the secret place and give myself wholly to You in constant communion, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
