Meaningful Prayers: Petition
The Upward Look
© Copyright 2012, Max D. Hutto,
“Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11 NASB
Praying includes acknowledging that God provides the daily necessities of life. The righteous person petitions God to provide the everyday, practical, and physical things needed for life in this world. Just as God provided daily manna for the children of Israel during the Exodus, God provides the daily bread and necessities for His children today. The righteous acknowledge this daily dependence on God as they request His provisions.
Lord Jesus, I gratefully admit my need for Your daily provisions. Thank You for providing all that I need for life abundant and eternal.
