When Jesus teaches His disciples how to pray, He urges them to petition God for daily bread. Each of us needs to trust God enough to ask for just enough for today.

By living for today – not for yesterday or tomorrow – I must place my confidence in God. Trust is the bond between God and me.

O Holly Spirit, calm my temptations to ruminate over the past or to fret about the future. By living today well, may God’s will be done.
