What I Need

Recently, I rode my bicycle in a charity event for work. Not knowing what the route would be like, I trained on hills and on rough and smooth roads. I also had my bicycle tuned up just before the event. The day was overcast and gloomy, but the fall trees and country roads were spectacular. I biked at times with other bikers, but for the most part, I biked alone, taking in the magnificent fall colours and scenery.

The Relationship

Matthew 6:9-13 – 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. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not in temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." (NIV)

What if my prayers always started with "Lord, I trust You to provide me with what I need", rather than "Lord, this is what I want"?
