Memory Work for October 17

the 4th Petition of the Lord's Prayer

Give us this day our daily bread.

What does this mean? 
God certainly gives daily bread to everyone
without our prayers,
even to all evil people,
but we pray in this petition that
God would lead us
to realize this and
to receive our daily bread with thanksgiving.

What is meant by daily bread? 
Daily bread includes everything
that has to do with the support and needs of the body,
such as food, drink, clothing, shoes, house, home, land, animals, money, goods, a devout husband or wife, devout children, devout workers, devout and faithful rulers, good government, good weather, peace, health, self‑control, good reputation, good friends, faithful neighbors, and the like.
