PROMISES TO KEEP
In Matthew 6:9-14 we read the prayer that Jesus taught us to pray…9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 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. (KJV)
Since we know that Jesus encouraged us to ask, seek & knock, with the promise that our God and Father would hear our prayers, then we can only assume that everything we pray in The Lord’s Prayer will be answered by our Heavenly Dad.
In verse 11, Jesus teaches us to ask our Father to provide our daily bread. If Jesus told us to ask for daily provision, then it was because He knew that His Father would provide what we need every day. We only need to ask and trust Him to provide because that is what good fathers do.
So don’t be afraid to pray to your Heavenly Father today and say… “Give us this day our daily bread”. (For a further reminder of this promise, read Matthew 6:25-34.)
