God's Provision: "Give Us Our Daily Bread"
When Jesus taught us to pray, He gave us a cromprehsive blueprint to follow. The first three requests deal with God's glory. The last three requests deal with the family. While the petitions to the Father talk about "Your name," "Your will," the last three requests have to do with us: "Give us," "forgive us," and "lead us." A theologian once pointed out that the whole of life captured in the rainbow of these requests: "Great things and small things; spiritual things and mater things; inward things and outward things - there is nothing that is not included in this prayer."
