Your Father Knows What You Need

February 23, 2021

Each day during Lent, I will be highlighting a Lenten Word (or phrase) of the Day from the readings of the day. I encourage you to reflect on this word or phrase throughout the day and incorporate it in your daily prayer.

Your Father knows what you need before you ask him. (Matthew 6:8)

YOUR FATHER KNOWS WHAT YOU NEED: What comfort these words should bring us!

Unfortunately, we often ask God for what we want or desire rather than for what we need. When we do that, we may feel like God isn’t listening to us. Why isn’t God answering my prayer?

Our prayer should be to trust God. He sees through the shallowness of our wants and desires, instead focusing on our heart. God knows what we need because he knows our heart.
