Jesus is so good in the Lord’s Prayer to help us realign and refocus us in our prayer even in our asking. That’s why Jesus, in his wisdom and love, urges us to pray for daily bread just for today. He doesn’t want us to think about tomorrow – to chase it, to be anxious about, to stress about. He wants us to live today and trust that he has tomorrow figured out and he will handle it. And what you start to see is that this petition is both request and redirection. Give us today our daily bread.
