Someone rightly said, “God enters through a private door in every individual”. Jesus also taught that prayer is getting in touch with the Father who is in the secret place. The house of every Jew had a place for secret devotion. The roofs were flat places, well adapted for walking and meditating, and a pious Jew might offer his prayers here unseen by anyone.

Few years back I visited the Golconda fort in Hyderabad, one of India’s world heritage sites. It was an architectural masterpiece and the tour guide literally made us relive those historic moments. One interesting place was the king’s personal chamber. This had a secret passage through which the king entered the queen’s court and visited the harem. There were also pathways discovered which had access to the treasure house from his private chamber. It was quite an experience to wade through those walkways which were hidden from the eyes of an outsider.

He who dwells in the ‘secret place’ of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalms 91:1) has been one of the favourite verses of all time. We find more than 20 promises listed for us is Psalms 91, and the one who dwells in the secret place of the most High goes on to  enjoy God’spresence (Ps 91:1-2), protection (Ps 91:3-13) and privileges (Ps 91:14-16). Finding God is certainly not an ordeal; right in our private room there is a staircase that will lead us to the Father’s throne. It is in the secret place where the Father sees us and rewards us.
