I saw my cat would soon need some food.
He still had enough so  I did not fill it up.
Then he came and sat at my feet with expectency.
He had faith that I would satisfy his need for more.
I already knew his need and welcomed his plea.
I answered his request and filled his bowl.
He ate and was satisfied.

God knows my need.
He is waiting for me to see my own hunger.
He invites me to bring my need before him in faith and expectency.
He is happy to fill my need.
Then he knows I will partake.
The process cultivated my relationship with my Master.
