The Lord’s Prayer: Twelve Tips for The Lord’s Prayer, Phrase-by-Phrase – “Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread”
7. Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread
Today’s prayer for today’s needs!!
Jesus taught “the power of now” – well before contemporary gurus.
No accruals from yesterday. No deferrals for tomorrow.
Pretty sly of you, God! You know how to keep your power base.
Tomorrow I’ll have to ask you again.
But you know my A.D.D. distractions, my impatience when you don’t answer right away and my insecurity that you might not be there tomorrow…
So, I have an idea. Why can’t I make one big prayer payment for the month – like I pay my bills?
Umm – I don’t see you nodding, yes.
Well, then please help me to trust your way and turn to you anew each day.
Give me the bread that fulfills my hopes and heals my hurts – today.
I’ll be back tomorrow!!
