“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, 
but deliver us from the evil one.’

Matthew 6:9-13

Jesus answered by quoting Deuteronomy: “It takes more than bread to stay alive. It takes a steady stream of words from God’s mouth.”
Matthew 4:4

Jesus said, “I am the Bread of Life. The person who aligns with me hungers no more and thirsts no more, ever.
John 6:35

Jesus responded, “The real significance of the Scriptures is not that Moses gave you bread from heaven but that my Father is right now offering you bread from heaven, the real bread. The Bread of God came down out of heaven and is giving life to the world.”
John 6:32-33
