Why we pray for “Daily Bread”

In Matthew 6, Jesus is teaching His disciples about prayer. It is in this chapter that we receive the Lord’s Prayer, which is a model of prayer for Christians to use. It was given by Jesus to help us understand how we may communicate with the Father. Not only does it show us how we may communicate with Him, but also that we can.
