All knowing God!

“For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him” (Matthew 6:8).  These were the words of Jesus Himself.  What an assurance do these words give you! The heavenly Father knows you and your need.  

A little girl was taught by her godly mother to thank God for every blessing and also to pray for her needs. One fine day as she was thanking God and praying to Him, her grandfather passed by that side. He heard her saying, “Thank You Jesus for Daddy. Thank You Jesus for Mummy.  Thank You Jesus for our food and water…ABCD...EFGHIJ...KLMN...OPQRS...TUVWX...YZ. Amen.” The grandfather was shocked and asked her, “Your prayer is nice. But, why did you recite the alphabets in between.” In her own sweet voice she said, “Grandpa, I didn’t know how to say my prayer. So, I said, ‘Lord, You know my desires and my love for You. You form all my thoughts Yourself and frame them into a prayer from these alphabets.’ ” The grandfather was taken aback by her answer. 
What a beautiful understanding of prayer the child had had! Prayer is just talking with your Daddy the Almighty God! If an earthly father knows his child well, how much more would be the understanding of your heavenly Father! Beloved He knows the deepest parts of your hearts heavy with desires very well.  He is with you just enjoying all the simple things you do and talk.  The Psalmist too says: “You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.  You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.  You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.  Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.  You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain” (Psalm 139:1-6). Your Creator is your father who will not hold anything good from you. With this understanding, begin your prayer, and entreat Him to supply your need. His supply will be beautiful and bountiful.
Loving Father,

I know You are a good Father who knows my needs before I ask. I know that You are my provider. I completely depend on You for my supply. You understand me better than anyone in this world. Bestow upon me the good gifts You have for me. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”
