DAILY PRAYER REQUESTS

 

Give us this day our daily bread.   Matthew 6:11.

Remove falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is allotted to me.   Proverbs 30:8

There is always a danger of going to extremes. Some people are so spiritual that they would take God out of the secular realm and leave it wholly to the devil and the world. Now, it is because Satan claims to be the god of this world that the true God wants us to recognize Him in it and inscribe “Holiness to the Lord” upon everything we touch. Secular things are the only things that the world can understand, and when the unsaved see God meeting us in them, our higher experience and more spiritual testimony speaks to the world forcefully of what God can do in all of life’s circumstances. Let us therefore not hesitate to praise the living God for our bodies, for our business, for our finances, for our joys and sorrows and thereby glorify the Lord of Heaven in the whole realm of nature and Providence.
