God tells us in Matthew 6:8, “Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” But in the next verses he tells us to pray for our needs. In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 God commands us to pray continually. That means to pray a lot! Prayer is God’s way for us to receive what we need from Him (Heb. 4:16). He tells us the reason we don’t have what we need is because we haven’t asked or because we are asking selfishly (James 4:2-4).
And we pray:
Dear Lord, we place today in Your Loving hands. Guide our steps, grant us wisdom and strength, and fill our hearts with gratitude. May our actions be a reflection of Your Love and grace. Protect and watch over us throughout the day, providing comfort and hope in every circumstance. In Jesus Name, Amen.
