"Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name." (Matthew 6:9 NRSV)

Our lesson from the Bible this morning has the Lord's Prayer in it. How many of you know the Lord's Prayer? Probably most of us. If you don't know it, that's ok. It is easy to learn. It goes like this: "Our Father which art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil"

I thought about the idea of daily bread as I was reading about baby robins. Did you know that a baby robin eats almost 100 meals a day--most of them before noon? Wow! What a big breakfast.

Jesus told us that God watches over the smallest, most insignificant bird. God makes certain that the baby robin gets its 100 meals a day. It is no problem at all, I guess, for God to make certain that we get our meals.

Aren't you thankful that God is such a great God. Think about that little robin and the 100 meals a day the next time you say another little prayer we all know: "God is great, God is good. Let us thank Him for our food."

God of grace, thank you for the prayer that gives me guidance for my prayers, and thank you for the meals you provide to all of your people. In Jesus' name, Amen.
