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

The Lord’s Prayer, as this prayer is often referred too, is a model prayer. It gives us a framework for our own prayers. In verse 11, we have a wonderful petition. It is so simple, but it is one that must come from our hearts with enthusiasm. In it we acknowledge our full dependence on God. In all aspects of our lives we depend on God. Our bodily wants, our physical necessities, our spiritual nourishment, all are supplied by God daily. Just as the people of Israel gathered manna for the day. We are to depend on God for our daily strength both physical and spiritual. The people of Israel gathered nothing for the next day. They could not store it up. God meets our needs daily. “Give us this day our daily bread.” This petition reminds us how God ought to be part of our daily lives, not just once a week, or twice a year, but each and every day.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
