Matthew 9:8-11 “This, then, is how you should pray: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.
John 14:13 – And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
God already knows what we need before we ask. Sometimes, He will provide it before we ask because He already knows. Other times, He waits for you to ask before He provides. Unfortunately, some people never pray or speak to God unless the need something from him.
The funny thing is He knows what we need sometimes, even when we do not. When it comes to our own personal circumstances, believe it or not, sometimes what we think we need is entirely different from what we actually need. This is why we pray for what we want or think we need, but we also should add to every prayer: “not my will, but thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.
Remember that He will do it not for you, but so that the Father (that’s God) will be glorified through the son (that is Jesus). You just happen to reap the benefits. It’s important for you to remember that we are here to glorify God in all things, thus we should get to a point where all we want is for God to be gloried in everything that we do.
Prayer starter: Lord, forgive me for making it all about me. As I continue in this journey, Holy Spirit, remind me that everything I do should be to God’s glory, not mine. Allow me to be sure to give Him the credit for all the success in my life…
