Give us today our daily bread (Bloomsbury Lent Series 2018 #3)


We pray for daily bread for the same reasons the Israelites gathered manna in the wilderness, to learn obedience to God who guides us into works of goodness, humility, and charity.

The prayer for daily bread, you see, is not about me, or even about us, lest we think that God especially favours us by answering our cry for food.

Rather, it’s a prayer that takes us into solidarity with those who lack, and which drives us into action to see the hungry fed, the poor raised up, and the impoverished released from the snares of debt.

It is a prayer that takes us into good works of transformative charity.
