So, do you do like what the hypocrites do, not only you pray in public places, you pray in FACEBOOK as if God is your FAN in Facebook.

You put million LIKEs in Facebook for His alleged FACE in Facebook for you do  not understand that when you pray to the Father, PRAY in SECRET for He sees you in SECRET.

You choose:  follow His words or follow Facebook, and Twitter, and YouTube, and Google? We do not say that social media is bad, except that, it is not the proper FORUM for you to be thanking God, praising the LORD and announcing you good works.

It is not old fashioned to do it, it is not low tech, but it is the procedure God told us how to do it…. how to pray and how to do good to others.

DO IT IN SECRET!
