September 12, 2010 – Morning Worship

Monday Matthew 6:9-13 (esp. vs. 11); Psalm 104; I Corinthians 10:31
How do the first three petitions (vss. 9b-10) influence how we pray the second three petitions (vss. 11-13)?

Tuesday Deuteronomy 8; Matthew 4:1-4; 6:11
When we pray for our daily bread, we are acknowledging our dependence on God for what?

Wednesday John 6:22-71; 3:1-15; 15:1-11
Why does prayer for “our daily bread” encompass more than just physical bread?

Thursday Exodus 16; Matthew 6:25-34
Why do we pray “give us this ‘day’ our ‘daily’ bread”? Why not weekly, monthly, yearly or just one time? Don’t we trust God? Does he forget?

Friday Proverbs 30:8-9; Luke 12:13-21; I Timothy 6:6-10
Why does God want us to live day to day and not give us an abundance? If we had plenty we could focus on other things rather than our daily bread? What do you think?

Saturday Deuteronomy 8:17-18; Ephesians 4:28; II Thessalonians 3:6-12; I Timothy 5:8
If it is God who provides all things physically and spiritually, then, in addition to prayer, what are we called to do? Are we also “providers”?
