“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. 6 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.”
Secrecy is the antitheses of the Hypocrite. It has no value for him since his entire goal is to be seen by others; for them—appearance is everything. But for those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, disappearance from the public is essential. Their only desired audience is with their Father in heaven. He is waiting for them there; in the secret place.
