The Fourth Petition of the Lord's Prayer

Give us today our daily bread.

What does this mean?

God gives daily bread, even without our prayer, to all people, though sinful,
but we ask in this prayer that he will help us to realize this and to receive our daily bread with thanks.

What is meant by "daily bread"?

Daily bread includes everything needed for this life, such as food and clothing, home and property, work and income, a devoted family,an orderly community, good government, favorable weather, peace and health, a good name, and true friends and neighbors.
