人目につかない場所 Private Place
(マタイ6:5-6 ERVからの直訳 あなたが祈るとき、偽善者のようになるな。
(Matthew 6:5-6 ERV) “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites. They love to stand in the synagogues and on the street corners and pray loudly. They want people to see them. The truth is, that’s all the reward they will get. (6) But when you pray, you should go into your room and close the door. Then pray to your Father. He is there in that private place. He can see what is done in private, and he will reward you.
俺らの内側（最も俺らに近い場所） Our Inside (Closest Place From Us)
(コロサイ 1:27-28 ALIVE訳）神は、この隠されていた真理がどれだけ壮大で、
(Colossians 1:27-28 ERV) God decided to let his people know just how rich and glorious that truth is. That secret truth, which is for all people, is that Christ lives in you, his people. He is our hope for glory. (28) So we continue to tell people about Christ. We use all wisdom to counsel every person and teach every person. We are trying to bring everyone before God as people who have grown to be spiritually mature in Christ.
(マタイ 6:5-6 MSGからの直訳)神様の前に立つとき、
(Matthew 6:5-6 MSG) “And when you come before God, don’t turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat? “Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.
Place Where You Can Connect With God (Anytime,Anywhere, Anyhow)
(マタイ 6:7-13 ALIVE訳)
(Matthew 6:7-13 ERV) “And when you pray, don’t be like the people who don’t know God. They say the same things again and again. They think that if they say it enough, their god will hear them. (8) Don’t be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask him. (9) So this is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, we pray that your name will always be kept holy. (10) We pray that your kingdom will come— that what you want will be done here on earth, the same as in heaven. (11) Give us the food we need for today. (12) Forgive our sins, just as we have forgiven those who did wrong to us. (13) Don’t let us be tempted, but save us from the Evil One.’
