“Let the Lord alone be the object of your prayers. Beware of having an eye to the auditors; beware of becoming rhetorical to please the listeners. Prayers must not be transformed into “an oblique sermon.” It is little short of blasphemy to make devotions an occasion for display. Fine prayers are generally very wicked prayers. We may aim at exciting the yearnings and aspirations of those who hear us in prayer; but every word and thought must be God ward, and only so far touching upon the people as may be needful to bring them and their wants before the LORD. Remember the people in your prayers, but do not mold your supplications to win their esteem; look up, look up with both eyes…We need a heavenly frame of mind.” ~Pastor Charles H. Spurgeon
