Give us this day our daily bread.”

Matthew 6:11 

The prayer Jesus taught us is very earthy – give us enough bread for today. I am taken by the plural pronoun, us. This prayer is not for my belly only, but for the hunger for the entire neighborhood. We are instructed to pray for our hunger and that of our family and all the other families on the street. Today we need food, not too fancy, but nourishment to sustain us all.
