Day 239: Prayer for the saints to learn to spend time to pray privately with the Lord

Pray that the saints would learn to spend time to pray privately with the Lord and to build up a life of personal, intimate fellowship with Him (Matt. 14:23; 6:6 and note 61; S. S. 1:4b and note 42).

Matt. 14:23—And after He sent the crowds away, He went up to the mountain privately to pray. And when night fell, He was there alone.

Matt. 6:6—But you, when you pray, enter into your private room, and shut your door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

S. S. 1:4b—The king has brought me into his chambers— / We will be glad and rejoice in you; / We will extol your love more than wine. / Rightly do they love you.
