“Give us today our daily bread” is a petition to God for the provision of human needs. When we pray these words, we are asking God to provide us with the things we need to live. But these words are also a proclamation. They are a proclamation of complete dependence on and trust in God to provide for our simplest and most fundamental needs. As we pray these words God’s Spirit transforms our own hearts to live in dependence, trust, and simplicity as we await the coming of God’s kingdom.
Today’s Scriptures | Matthew 6.7-13
Matt. 6:7 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. 8 “So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
Matt. 6:9 “Pray, then, in this way:
‘Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 ‘Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread.
12 ‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’
