A Collect for Dependence
'Give us each day our daily bread.' - Luke 11:3 (ESV)
Father of all good things, who gives us our food in due season, help us to recognize our dependence upon you and others, that we might not fall into the trap of pride or self-sufficiency, but recognize that we are created in and for relationship, and we have received much from others, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who gave us a means by which to regain fellowship, like him, with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen.
