“And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.” Matthew 6:7 “Don’t be like the hypocrites”; “don’t use vain repetitions as the heathen do.” Jesus is giving His followers instructions here as to how to pray effectively. He’s telling them how to appropriate the resources of heaven and earth. Prayer is not about ‘being seen’ and revered, as the Pharisees wanted it to be. And even the heathen knew to pray but they had no reference point as to how it needed to be done.
