Luke 11:4, What We Need Today

“Teach us to pray,” was the request made by an unidentified disciple. Jesus’ response bequeathed to the church in every generation, requests to be offered and a pattern to be followed.The model prayer contains five petitions in proper priority, two that give priority to God’s interests and three that express our needs. Today we consider the implications of the third petition, “Give us each day our daily bread”(4).
