Discussion for Matthew 6:11

  • Anthony Sims for verse 11
    This is the only physical need Jesus included in this prayer. God hears our prayers and within our prayers we reveal the desires of our heart, which God already knows. King Solomon said, VANITY, VANITY, ALL IN THIS LIFE IS VANITY. He prayed for wisdom and he finally got it at the end of his life. God will provide physical needs. God wants a living loving relationship with us. I now pray for God 's kingdom here on earth to be revealed unto me daily. We must be careful what we pray for because God is listening. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. Psalms 23.1 Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Praise God! Hallelujah! Jesus lives!
  • Jon Riley for verse 11
    Reminds that one the first things God did to teach Jews of their need of him. The giving of the Manna and how it was suitable to meet their needs. It also reminds how implicitly we should trust him.
  • Gurjit Singh for verse 11
    Saints always talk for our soul 's welfare.Daily bread for our soul is success in the movement towards God.So daily bread means strengthning our prayer will for getting mercy of God.
