Almighty God, who knows our necessities before we ask, and our ignorance in asking:
    set free your servants from all anxious thoughts for the morrow.
Give us contentment with your good gifts.
Confirm our faith that, according as we seek your kingdom,
    you will not suffer us to lack any good thing.
Provide, therefore, whatever you see to be necessary for our health and salvation.
Of your fatherly love and compassion, give us whatever else would truly bless us.
All our desire is known, O Lord, to you.
Therefore perfect in us what your Spirit has awakened us to ask in prayer.

Luke 12:29-31

And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it.
For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them.  But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
