Welcome to Refinery Life Australia.

The Master’s recipe for Effective Praying is the theme for the next few Sunday’s and is a study of the petitions found in the Lord’s prayer.

Today we are discussing, Our Daily Bread.

Prayer begins with Godward concerns, but it does not end there.

The first three petitions of the Lord’s Prayer make petitions for the name, Kingdom, and the will of God.

These must be the first concerns in our prayer life.

But then Jesus gave us four petitions to cover our personal needs. 

The last four petitions are inclusive.

Give us this day our daily bread touches on the needs of the body.

Forgive us our debts includes the needs of the soul.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil speak to the spiritual needs of the person.

This reminds us that we can take whatever concerns us to the Heavenly Father in prayer.

Give us our daily bread would seem to be a simple statement of need, yet many different interpretations of been set forth.

Some of drawn back from thinking of it as a simple request for daily bread.

They’ve changed it to mean Spiritual Bread from the Word of God or Christ, the Bread of Life, and some have even referred to it as the Bread of the Lord’s Table. 

There is no need for such spiritualisation of the request.

Our God is just as concerned that the basic necessities of life be supplied as He is that we have spiritual bread for the spirit.

Oh god is concerned about the total person.

Stay in the Blessings

I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.

When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer.

Theres nothing thats too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!

You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at The Refinery.

When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you.

So whatever you’re concerned about and need prayer for we want to be here for you! Or even if you just want to say Hi, you can contact us at
