But, in the Christian life that is not how God works. In reality, when we pray, we need to remember the famous words of our Savior: Matthew 6:6
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
What I mean is when we pray, we are to not show off praying but to silently pray in secret.
And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.
Finally brothers and sisters, pray for others as well as yourselves and give cheerfully because God loves a cheerful giver.
