On each Sunday of Lent, we will take a phrase of the Lord’s Prayer and explore it from a Spiritual perspective. What does it mean – not only in terms of belief, but how it sits in our hearts and spiritus, and how we are to live it every day? The presentations will also include time for introducing a prayer practice for those who would like to find new ways to center themselves in God’s presence and among the people of God.
Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread.
What does this simple phrase mean to us? Is this “bread” physical, emotional, spiritual, or all of the above? Are their times in your life when you were hungry and were fed? Some people are already fed sufficiently. What does it mean for then to pray this prayer? What does it mean for those who are truly physically hungry? Why do you think Jesus included this petition in his prayer? Why “this day?” Where does “this day” come from? Why not tomorrow? In what spirit do you pray this prayer? Demanding, pleading, threatening, trusting, or something else? How are our prayers answer? Or do you think our prayers are answered?
