Matthew 6:11 ” Give us today our daily bread.”

In this verse of the Lord’s Prayer, we’re told to ask for our regular allotment of bread in order to sustain and support our life.  And as Proverbs 30:8 implores, not too much, that I turn my back on You God…or too little, that I steal and dishonor Your name.  But we’re also asking for more than ordinary bread, for in Lamentations 3:23-24, it tells us God’s compassion towards us is new every morning, and that He is our daily portion.  This daily spiritual bread is shown in John, the 6th Chapter, when Jesus calls Himself the “Bread of Life”.
