Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1967 Greek: epiousios

Daily (Adjective):

is found in Mat 6:11; Luk 11:3. Some would derive the word from epi, "upon," and eimi, "to be," as if to signify "(bread) present," i.e., sufficient bread, but this formation is questionable. The same objection applies to the conjecture, that it is derived from epi, and ousia, and signifies "(bread) for sustenance." The more probable derivation is from epi, and eimi, "to go," (bread) for going on, i.e., for the morrow and after, or (bread) coming (for us). See the RV marg. This suits the added semeron, "to-day," i.e., the prayer is to be for bread that suffices for this day and next, so that the mind may conform to Christ's warning against anxiety for the morrow. Confirmation of this derivation is also to be found in the word epiouse, in the phrase "the next day," Act 7:26; 16:11.

2 Strong's Number: g2184 Greek: ephemeros

Daily (Adjective):

signifies "for the day" (epi, "upon, or for," hemera, "a day," Eng., "ephemeral"), Jam 2:15.

3 Strong's Number: g2522 Greek: kathemerinos

Daily (Adjective):

means, lit., "according to" (kata) "the day" (hemera), "day by day, daily," Act 6:1.

Notes: The following phrases contain the word hemera, "day," and are translated "daily" or otherwise:

(a) kath' hemeran, lit., "according to, or for, (the) day, or throughout the day," "day by day," e.g., Luk 11:3; Act 3:2; 16:5; 1Cr 15:31; Hbr 7:27;

(b) hemera kai hemera lit., "day and day," "day by day," 2Cr 4:16;

(c) hemeran ex hemeras, lit., "day from day," "from day to day," 2Pe 2:8;

(d) semeron, "this day," or "to-day," used outside the Synoptists and the Acts, in 2Cr 3:14, 15, eight times in Hebrews, and in Jam 4:13;

(e) tes semeron hemeras, "(unto) this very day," Rom 11:8 (RV);

(f) tas hemeras, Luk 21:37, RV, "every day," for AV, "in the daytime;"

(g) pasan hemeran, Act 5:42, RV, "every day;" preceded by kata in Act 17:17, RV, "every day;"

(h) kath' kekasten hemeran, lit., "according to each day," Hbr 3:13, "day by day," RV.
