Four Things we Need – 1 - Daily Bread

‘Give us this day our daily bread’
Those words to your disciples said.
‘You’ll need to use them each new day
As you go forward on your way’.

How true that is, with money short;
These rising costs, and out of work;
Costs to survive are rising fast
How long we wonder, food will last.

We need some food – in thirty days;
Water to drink in ten, they say;
Hope for our journey wisps like air
Constant our need lest we despair.

Lord we confess our greedy ways
Hoarding our wealth for future days;
Stories of famine, daily read –
Forgive us, Lord, our daily bread.
