“This, then, is how you should pray: ” ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’ “所以,你们祷告要这样说:“我们在天上的父,愿人都尊你的名为圣。愿你的国降临。愿你的旨意行在地上,如同行在天上。我们日用的饮食,今日赐给我们。免我们的债,如同我们免了人的债。不叫我们遇见试探,救我们脱离凶恶。” (马太6:9-13)


面包是一个隐喻,在圣经中代表一切供應。“Daily bread”是指日常所需,包括身体和精神上的。


在以上的圣经经文中,耶稣告诉他的门徒要牢记神给我们每日所需。在旧约出埃及记中,以色列人逃出埃及后,在曠野中没有食物,上帝就由从天降下面包,如同降下晨露般。 “Daily bread”也是一份环球刊物的名称,它的网址是www.rbc.org。它每天在线向萬千信徒發每日靈修讀物,其刊物亦於世界各地派發。
