If you’re only praying for material things, then you must only have fabricated faith.
The more I read about Jesus, the more I admire His faith.
You not only get a lesson of how to pray, but you also will notice what He didn’t pray for.
Not once did He ask for a house or a donkey to get around on, but He did ask for DAILY bread, the daily essentials.
He didn’t pray for a better tomorrow, or dwell over yesterday.
He knew His Father will provide what He needed day by day, but the prayer was important to communicate with God and to build that relationship with His Father.
We praise Him, give thanks and ask for forgiveness for ourselves and for others.
I’ve been learning to pray for what He wants me to do with my life, while asking Him to remove anything that isn’t from Him, even if it hurts me but to give me the strength and the courage to handle whatever the outcome.
Praying is like exercising.
We need it in our lives to help sustain our health mentally, physically and emotionally.
