Jesus said to his disciples, “Do not worry for your life what you will eat, nor say, What shall we eat?” (Matthew 6:25 and 31)
He concludes with these words:
“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.” (Matthew 6:33)
When Jesus invites us, in the prayer of the "Our Father", to ask for "our daily bread", let us not forget that this was happening in a context where daily bread was not an absolute guarantee.
Let us also not forget that this precarious situation is, still today, the case for a large number of people on our earth.
God, who fed the prophet Elijah in the desert, who multiplied flour and oil for the widow of Zarephath, who fed the inhabitants of Samaria then reduced to famine by an unyielding siege in the days of Elisha (2 Kings 7), promised that he would provide our daily bread.
Let go of your cares, he is faithful to supply that need.
"Lord, thank you because I know that you are able to give me everything I need, even before I ask you, if my heart is first centered on your priorities. I pray to you for those most in need , so that we obey this word: "Share your bread with the hungry!" May from this day onward my prayer always be placed in this perspective of generosity! May on this day, many of those who were worried , let go of this worry and experience the miracle of your provision! In the name of Jesus, amen!”
