It is no small prayer. When a Christian asks God to “give daily bread”she is calling on the One who manages a thousand systems that operate in the background. She is speaking to the one who brings spring and summer, who brings rain and harvest. Without even realizing it, she is calling on the One who strengthens the will of the farmer, and the work of the grocer, and the wisdom of the banker. The end result may seem small (a piece of bread) but it is isn’t. When we speak of providence, we refer to the great goodness of God. Part of God’s providence is to manage a world in which our needs can be met. I wonder if this morning, you will not call on this great God to meet your needs according to His vast capability? Even small gifts are signals of His large love.
