“Give us this day our daily bread…”

We have experienced many financial miracles here on Prayer Mountain Dallas. Yet from Day One of this venture in faith, I personally had had to arise morning by morning to seek the Lord for our daily supply. Getting down on my knees to pray in the money for the day’s provision became an habitual exercise of faith. I wanted to enter the promised land of abundance. Yet I was gathering my manna in the morning. Every day.

Eventually though, this activity which had been a burden became a privilege. Memories of the little boy inside me recalled how I received lunch money daily from my dad. His pocket change met my immediate need for my school lunch. Back then I did not require tomorrow’s money, just two quarters for today. It was a small but significant ritual: wolfing down a quick breakfast, zipping through a fast read from the colorful promise box, and then hurrying out the door to the bus stop.

I am living out a continuum, still after all these years. Prayer is not something I have to do. It is a privilege I get to do. Morning by morning I gather my manna.

George Mueller cared for countless orphans in his British orphanage. The funds to feed, clothe, house, and educate his big family came as a direct result of George’s prayers. If George did not pray, the kids did not eat. But George’s daily prayer life grew to impact far more than his orphanage’s daily needs.

Something bigger than lunch money is at stake. The real issue is the daily touchpoint and fellowship with our Heavenly Father. We can never get too busy to break bread with Him.

Before we hasten out the door to catch the bus of life, let’s take time to dine with the Lord and draw from His promises: My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
