Give Us this Day
Matthew 6:11, 35-34
Praying Like Jesus
How can we grow generous hearts when we are consumed with anxiety about our wants and needs?
Simply ask God daily for your daily needs
Matthew 6:11 (ESV)
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
Live with open hands
Matthew 6:19–24 (ESV)
19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20
but lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where
