Lord's Day 50


125 Q.    What does the fourth request mean?


       A.    Give us this day our daily bread means,


Do take care of all our physical needs1

so that we come to know

that you are the only source of everything good,2

and that neither our work and worry

nor your gifts

can do us any good without your blessing.3


And so help us to give up our trust in creatures

and to put trust in you alone.4
