Alma 34:26 -- On Closets and Prayers

"But this is not all; ye must pour out your souls in your closets, and your secret places, and in your wilderness."
Alma 34:26

I liked this today because we use closets to symbolize the hidden things in our lives, and God emphasizes here that prayer isn't just about public choices, family prayers or praying over meals or in church.  Prayer is important in those hidden places in our souls as well, in our secret places, and in the wilderness when we are lost.  Perhaps, in fact, it is more important in those places because God knows every bit of us, and he can be there for us when no one else can.

Today, let's pour out our souls to God, in our closets and secret places as well as our living rooms, kitchens, and offices. :)  Let's remember that God is part of all of it, everywhere.  He is not a fair-weather friend, but will be there to help and comfort us no matter what, no matter when, no matter where.
