Give us today our daily bread.
This supplication shows our need to learn an accountability for each day’s hours and events. Jesus is teaching us to ask for the Father’s direction and provision in every event and during each hour of our day. “Committing each day’s details to God in prayer—requesting today’s bread—can deliver us from pointless pursuits and wasted time.” Such prayer paves the way to victorious days. “Daily bread” prayer is a “daily victory” and “daily overcoming” prayer because we are drawing on God’s full provision for our sufficiency. He will help us to overcome anything that might wrench our lives from His purpose or cause valuable time to slip through our fingers. Submit your day to the Lord and ask Him to provide for your needs.
