Jesus said to pray for the food you will eat, or your daily bread as some versions say, which probably refers to everything we need to survive - food, shelter, clothing, water... When Jesus taught this, people were paid day by day for the work they did that day. There was no sick leave, worker's compensation or holidays. If you didn't work that day, you probably didn't eat that day.
We are told to pray about these things but also, not to worry about them. Matthew 6:25-26 says, Don’t worry about the things you need to live—what you will eat, drink, or wear. Life is more important than food, and the body is more important than what you put on it. Look at the birds. They don’t plant, harvest, or save food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. Don’t you know you are worth much more than they are? God looks after the birds and you're much more important than them, so how much more will he look after you!
Psalm 16:5 says, Lord, you give me all that I need.
Psalm 145:16 You open your hands and give every living thing all that it needs.
God cares about our needs and invites us to pray about them.
