Our Daily Bread
Kathy — Give us this day our daily bread. . . In a healthy father-son relationship, a son does not ask his father for enough food to be sustained for a day. (Matt.6:8 already stated Father is aware of our needs even before we are.) Give us this day our daily bread, more than a request, is a declaration of trust that our Father will decide the right portion, daily. Rather than a mere petition, it is a declaration of agreement when we realize that our Father already knows the portion of provision (physically, financially, circumstantially) that we need in our lives today, not just to survive but to be fulfilled and equipped and successful.
