"Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory for ever. Amen. Matthew 6:9-13
"Give us this day our daily bread" - Tucked in the middle of this pattern prayer is the request for our daily sustenance. It is not a request for tomorrow's needs but for TODAY! In the wilderness when the Israelites were fed with Manna from heaven - they were only allowed to collect enough for the DAY! Not for tomorrow except before the Sabbath - there was no manna sent on the Sabbath - what they collected the day before was 2 portions to last them through the Sabbath. Sometimes we are so concerned about the future and what we perceive to be future obstacles and needs - but all we're promised is for TODAY! But TODAY we are promised ALL of heaven's resources that we may need. ASK away!
