"“Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”" John 4:21-24 (NIV)
This is part of Jesus' conversation with the Samaritan woman. How wonderful that story is! And how amazing is it that we don't have to go somewhere to worship our Father, but can do that in spirit, right where we are!
"But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." Matthew 6:6 (NIV)
How about you? Have you ever felt that you need to be in church to pray? Where do you feel closest to God?
