Give us today our daily bread.
– Matthew 6:11 (NIV)
by Dave Whitehead, Author of Making Sense of the Bible
Jesus taught His disciples to pray for their daily needs, so there should be no shame in asking heaven for provision. Once our hearts have been aligned to God as our Father and His agenda for the earth, we are ready to pray for our own needs. Why? When we start with God and His kingdom first, our needs come into perspective. The self-centered prayers fade away. God knows your needs, so focus first on Him, then boldly pray for your own provision.
