Today! / by Dave Hileman

In Jesus’ teaching on prayer he reminds us of a daily need to be in touch with Him with a most common need that every living being requires, sustenance. It could have been worded take care of us this month or year or… But the connection is to a daily need for him that outweighs a daily need for food that He can supply. My friend and teacher, Bob Martin, wrote, “Its (prayer) purpose is neither that of informing God of our needs nor of prevailing upon Him to supply them. Instead, its practice is intended to secure and sustain us in our relationship with Him.” God Our Father, p183
