When we pray and ask God to provide for our daily needs, we demonstrate trust. Sure, we know that God already knows what we need before even we ourselves know it. But He desires to hear our voices calling out to Him, that we would openly acknowledge His sovereignty as we ask Him to provide in even our most desperate needs.

Today, consider making a list of your needs, however immediate they may be, and spend some time lifting them up to the One who already knows. Find a place to keep your list where you can daily lift them to the Lord–and make a note of praise next to them as you see His provision in some way.
