Daily Bread, Daily Need

A Prayer for Daily Bread by Jonathan Martin

I do not ask
for some future bread
.I do not ask
for some lofty thing. 

I ask for nothing more
I ask for nothing less
than primal provision.
For this, and this—only this. 

I do not ask for then.
I do not ask for there.
I do not ask for that.only 
this meal—this moment. 

for this day, only
for this, and this—only this.
