Q. What does the fourth petition mean?
A. “Give us this day our daily bread” means:
Do take care of all our physical needs so that we come to know that you are the only source
of everything good, and that neither our work and worry nor your gifts can do us any good
without your blessing. And so help us to give up our trust in creatures and trust in you alone.

    Contentment: Remove far from me falsehood and lying; give me neither poverty nor riches;
    feed me with the food that is needful for me, lest I be full and deny you and say, “Who is the
    LORD?” or lest I be poor and steal and profane the name of my God.
