Some of my friends, during the holidays, are going to colleges and praying in front of the colleges. Is there any use in doing this?


"And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly" (Matthew 6:5-6).

Isn't odd that God hears our prayers anywhere that we are, but some people insist on going to the showiest places to pray? Jesus tells us what the motivation is, and it isn't good.
