“Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins.”
We need bread. We cyar live without bread. We need mercy. Don’t even think about it; we cyar live good without mercy from the Divine Shepherdess. To live a passionate life we need bread and mercy; for that we must bow down and ask in prayer.
Bread and mercy stands for what only God gives; the great giver of life’s essentials. If your bread basket is always full you might be tempted not to ask for that bread. Not asking, for whatever reason, assures that you two never shall meet.
‘Papa God, give us today our daily bread.’ Asking opens up the channels of giving and receiving. Humbly asking opens up the channels of receiving with gratitude and giving with gratefulness. It establishes the dance of a relationship; a two way tango, ongoing, a lovely embrace. It is the place where the giver and receiver meet; the crucible of the intimate coupling of you and your God. Oh, how we need each other. Asking is how we dance with the Father.
