Isaiah 50:4-9, Ps 69, Matthew 26:14-25

Lord, in your great love, answer me

A young mother had lived below the poverty line for a long while. They had eaten the last of the food. She decided to take her three young children to the park. As she locked the door, she prayed, “Lord, I can’t do this anymore.”

When she returned a few hours later, she found twelve loaves of bread on the doorstep. An unknown donor. An unexpected gift. The woman now knew she was heard. She knew she was loved.

Do we trust God to know what we need?
