Give us This Day our Daily Bread


Give us this day our daily bread.

You, O God, who have appointed us to seek first the kingdom of God and its righteousness, have promised that if we do so, other things will be added to us: Matthew 6:33(ESV) And therefore, having prayed for the sanctifying of your name, the coming of your kingdom, and the doing of your will, we next pray, Father in heaven, give us this day, and each day, our daily bread. Luke 11:3(ESV)

Remove far from us falsehood and lying; give us neither poverty nor riches; feed us with food that is needful for us, lest we be full and deny you, and say, “Who is the LORD?” or lest we be poor and steal and profane the name of our God. Proverbs 30:8-9(ESV)

Lord, we do not ask for delicacies, for they are deceptive food, Proverbs 23:3(ESV) nor do we pray that we may feast sumptuously every day, Luke 16:19(ESV) for we would not in our lifetime receive our good things; Luke 16:25(ESV) but we pray for that bread which is necessary to strengthen man’s heart. Psalm 104:15(ESV) We desire not to eat the bread of deceit, Proverbs 20:17(ESV) nor to drink any stolen water, Proverbs 9:17(ESV) nor would we eat the bread of idleness, Proverbs 31:27(ESV) but that if it be your will we may eat the fruit of the labor of our own hands, Psalm 128:2(ESV) that we may do our work quietly and eat our own bread; 2 Thessalonians 3:12(ESV) and having food and clothing, grant us to be content with these, 1 Timothy 6:8(ESV) and to say, “We have received full payment, and more.” Philippians 4:18(ESV)
