Summary: A danger involved with praying for “our daily bread” is that we are tempted to rush to this part of our prayer feeling overwhelmingly needy and/or deserving. Prayer becomes a shopping list of our needs, wishes, and dreams.
If we don’t spend time seeking the honor of God’s name and praying that Earth will look and sound and act more like Heaven, then all our own desires and hopes will come rushing at us, taking over the prayer.
Scripture: Matthew 6:11-13
