Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory,
forever and ever.
We each interpret scripture in our own way. I believe that’s what God intended.
Many people interpret the line in The Lord’s Prayer, “Give us this day our daily bread,” literally, as a plea for physical sustenance so we don’t starve to death. But I’ve always interpreted the line to encompass the myriad ways we feed ourselves – our bodies, our minds, and our souls.
My fervent prayer is for God to use whatever gifts or experience He’s given me to glorify Him. I pray that others might find His light in me.
These passages reflect my quest for daily bread. I hope my journey inspires you to find and share your light.
