daily bread

      If autonomy and self-reliance were good for us, God probably would’ve told us to ask for monthly (or yearly) bread instead.

“When you pray, say, 'Father, . . . [g]ive us each day our daily bread . . . and lead us. . . .’” Luke 11:2-4

“Dear Father, take this day’s life into Thine own keeping. . . . Direct all my energies. Instruct my mind. Sustain my will.” John Baillie
