A Day Called Today
Jesus didn't instruct us to pray once a week at church for everything we would need in the week to come. Rather, he taught us to ask "this day" for our "daily" bread. God wants us to go to him every day, and this fifth part of our eight-part series on prayer talks about that very issue.
When God fed the Israelites with manna from heaven, they had to gather it in the morning. When the sun grew hot, the manna melted away. Let's make sure we're seeking God at the beginning of our day, so we can receive the spiritual bread from heaven we need to stay victorious today.

The Second Omer
During the week, each Israelite needed one omer (a measure) of manna. But on the sixth day, the day before the Sabbath, each person needed to gather two. You see, there was no manna on the ground on the Sabbath.
Jesus said the night is coming in which no one can work. And when we remember the parable of the ten virgins, half of whom were foolish and did not have enough oil in their lamps for the night time, we just might sense an urgency to gather enough bread from heaven to see us through.
You don't know what trials and temptations and attacks of the enemy will come your way today. If Jesus rose early in the morning before the sun rose to pray, knowing that he could not make it on his own, how much more do we need to spend a good amount of quality, focused time seeking after the Spirit and Word of God at the very beginning of each and every day.
And we do this not only for ourselves, but also for all those Jesus has called us to reach. It is vital that we cover each day in prayer, as well as each person with whom we are going to come into contact, backing up these prayers with obedience. And the lost will continue to come to Jesus as a result.
Currently there are more than 10,461,730 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 150,000 to 300,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
