Prayer for December 14: Please pray with me. In your words, you teach us to pray to ask for our daily bread. Yes, Lord, give us our daily bread – our portion of food that we need to sustain life. Give us good food that will nourish us and help us to thrive. Give us enough food Lord that we can share it with those around us so that they may also experience abundant life. So they may know what it means to thrive. Feed us so we can feed others. And in feeding them, help us to not just take care of the physical needs of our neighbors, but also feed their human worth and value – to know that they are seen, heard, loved, and cared for. That they also feed us in knowing that there is hope for humanity. Amen.
