Praying for what we need

I’ve just been watching a YouTube video featuring Jared C. Wilson explaining the connection between prayer and worship.

While there are many great points in this video, one thing that struck me which I’d never thought before is the need for daily prayer for the things we require.

I’m a well paid person who lives alone and I rent a small one bedroom flat. I have a car and I buy my groceries each week. I don’t feel like I need anything, however, Jared reminds viewers that in the Lord’s prayer we’re taught to pray for our daily bread.

Prayer is acknowledgement of God and we should pray daily for our needs to demonstrate our trust and reliance on God for not just our wants, but also our needs.

I recommend you watch this short video. It’s well worth it.
