The Lord Jesus performed a lot of miracles during His work, yet He always told people not to tell others. What’s God’s will in it?

Let There Be Light – Hillsong Worship
This popularpraise song was sung by Hillsong Worship. It begins with soft singing, and then the instruments gradually fade in, pushing the atmosphere there to a climax, which makes us so excited that we even want to sing out loud to praise God with them and offer God our most sincere prayers. Our hearts are bathed in the light of God and no longer shrouded in darkness, just like the name of the song, Let There Be Light.
Each time I am listening to the song, I feel the importance of prayer in my heart. When Ito God with a true heart, I feel really bright in my heart and unknowingly understand many unfathomable things, which makes me feel God is right by my side all along. In fact, I did not know how to pray to God to be heard by God before. Sometimes I prayed to God, hoping God could bless my whole family with peace and success in work; sometimes I pray for all my wishes coming true. I also learned to use many nice-sounding words to pray to God, but I felt empty and had no idea whether God had listened to my prayer when I prayed in this way. Later, I saw saying, “Whilst praying, your heart must be at peace before God, and it must be sincere. You are truly communing and praying with God; you must not deceive God using nice-sounding words. Prayer is centered around that which God wishes to complete today. Ask God to bring you greater enlightenment and illumination, and bring your actual state and troubles before God to pray, and make resolution before God. Prayer is not the following of procedure, but the seeking of God using your true heart. Ask that God protect your heart, making it able to often be at peace before God, making you able to know yourself, and despise yourself, and forsake yourself in the environment that God has set for you, thus allowing you to have a normal relationship with God and making you someone who truly loves God.” “Prayer is not a case of going through the formalities, or following procedure, or reciting the words of God, which is to say, prayer does not mean parroting words and copying others. In prayer, you must give your heart to God, sharing the words in your heart with God so that you may be touched by God. If your prayers are to be effective, then they must be based on your reading of God’s words. Only by praying amid God’s words will you be able to receive more enlightenment and illumination. A true prayer is shown by having a heart that yearns for the requirements made by God, and being willing to fulfill these requirements; you will be able to hate all that God hates, upon the basis of which you will have knowledge, and will know and be clear about the truths explained by God. Having the resolution, and faith, and knowledge, and a path by which to practice after praying—only this is truly praying, and only prayer such as this can be effective. Yet prayer must be built upon the foundation of enjoying God’s words and communing with God in His words, your heart being able to seek God and being at peace before God. Such prayer has already reached the point of true communion with God.” God’s words clearly show us the path to praying. I got to know that it doesn’t matter whether the words of our prayers are beautiful or not, but whether we could quiet ourselves before God and speak the words within our hearts to Him. Rather than praying God for blessings, we need to pray to seek His will and obey the people, events, and things arranged by Him, so that we can gain more enlightenments. It can be seen that if we enter into true prayer, God will surely listen to our prayers and enlighten us to understand more truth. Thus, we are able to maintain a normal condition before God.
Afterward, I don’t pray God in the way as before, instead, I speak the words within my heart to God, and bring my actual state and troubles before God to pray more. By cooperating with God little by little, my state gradually becomes much better. When facing difficulties, I have more resolution to cooperate with God, feeling peaceful and clear in my heart, so that I have greater faith toward God. I believe God is right by our side, guiding us forward. God is with us, our future will surely be full of light.
