What do you ask of God when you pray?
Because David depended on God, he asked Him to supply his needs. He recognized God as faithful, loving, restoring, giving, and satisfying (see Psalm 145: 13b-16). Today, we are offered the same opportunity to ask God to supply all our needs in Christ (see Philippians 4:19).
In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus asked: “Give us today our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11). This referenced God’s provision of Manna in the desert for the Israelites. It was an illustration of the people’s total dependence on God to supply their needs to advance His kingdom.
When David asked God to supply all his needs, he received God’s provision (see Psalm 145: 15-16). Consequently, David advanced the kingdom of God in others. When we ask God to supply our needs, we recognize our total dependence on Him to advance His kingdom through us and into others. Subsequently, He downloads His provision.
Ask God 24/7 to supply your needs to advance His kingdom through you and into others. When you pray, ask His Spirit to help you identify and provide any missing resource for you to communicate Christ to those in your life. God will download His provision and equip you to link His provision with others.
