What Is Daily Bread?
What does this mean? God gives daily bread, even without our prayer, to all wicked people; but we pray in this petition that He would lead us to realize this and to receive our daily bread with thanksgiving, What is meant by daily bread? Everything that belongs to the support and needs of the body, such as food, drink, clothing, shoes, house, home, field, cattle, money, goods, a pious spouse, pious rulers, good government, good weather, peace, health, discipline, honor, good friends, faithful neighbors, and the like.

From the Small Catechism (Concordia, p. 335)
