Why do we pray for our food? I was reading the Lord’s prayer this morning and asked this question of my children. Here is what I told them:
We tell God thank you for our food because Jesus tells us to pray each day (“this day” “daily bread”) for our needs.
And I’m reminding myself that this is why I must pray each day for wisdom and strength to be the Christian, wife, mom that He wants me to be. Sometimes I forget to ask (evidence of too much self-reliance).
