Matthew 6:14 In prayer there is a connection between what God does and what you do. You can’t get forgiveness from God, for instance, without also forgiving others.
We ask each day for bread. The bread of life, that teaches us sobriety and temperance. We ask only for what we need, not for what we do not need.
We ask for our daily bread; which teaches us constantly to depend upon God.
We ask God to give it us, not sell it to us or lend it to us. We all need to learn to rely on the mercy of God in recovery.
