"Grace for to-day"

The supplication in the Lord's Prayer, "Give us this day our daily bread," is given clearer and deeper meaning in its spiritual interpretation by Mary Baker Eddy in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 17): "Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections."

In the first moments of the dawn, the thought of the earnest Christian Scientist ascends Godward in prayer that his day be one of utmost accomplishment of good, a day of opportunity to grow in grace and in the brighter reflection of divine Love. Thus, he greets the day with a smile and with a glad song in his heart, and with an unbounded gratitude for the blessings that are from on high. Just to know the way of Life which Christian Science teaches, to be able to think truly, to see clearly the divine realities, and to be able to differentiate between that which is real and that which is false, gives cause for the gratitude that is nurtured in the thought of the sincere student of this Science.
