Mark 12:18-44 - Key

v40

Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.

Christ warned against the scribes, who made a pretense in their prayers. We shouldn't use vain repetitions when we pray. We should make our requests known to God, and cast our burdens on Him. Our prayers don't need to be long; they just need to be real.

Application

In my personal prayer times, I'll make a point to pray about what I care about.
