Give Us Our Daily Bread
It’s amazing to think about how brief "The Lord’s Prayer" is, and yet how comprehensive and expansive it is. The Lord’s Prayer is a model or a pattern for all prayer. Everything we need to know about prayer is right here. Everything we need to unlock the true heart of prayer is here. Everything we need to access all the resources of heaven is here.
“Give us our daily bread” is the first petition in the prayer that focuses on our needs. The prayer is divided into two halves. The first half concerns God and His glory. The second half concerns man and his needs. When God is given the supreme place then everything else fits into its appropriate place.
