"Give us this day our daily bread"

WHEN the disciples saw the works that Jesus was able to perform through his life of earnest prayer, one of them said to him, "Teach us to pray," and in response he taught them the prayer which Mrs. Eddy describes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 16) as "that prayer which covers all human needs." They proved that they had glimpsed the spiritual meaning of this prayer, for it is recorded that they said to the Master, "Even the devils are subject unto us through thy name."

When they failed to heal a certain case, and inquired of Jesus regarding their inability to heal it, they were told that "this kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting." They knew that their Master had spent long hours in the watches of the night in communion with his Father, and they had seen the results of his consecration; for he healed all manner of disease and raised the dead.
