Teaching about Prayer
1Once Jesus was in a certain place praying. As he finished, one of his disciples came to him and said, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
2Jesus said, “This is how you should pray:*11:2 Some manuscripts add additional phrases from the Lord’s Prayer as it reads in Matt 6:9-13.
“Father, may your name be kept holy.
May your Kingdom come soon.
3Give us each day the food we need,*11:3 Or Give us each day our food for the day; or Give us each day our food for tomorrow.
4and forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
And don’t let us yield to temptation.*11:4 Or And keep us from being tested.”
5Then, teaching them more about prayer, he used this story: “Suppose you went to a friend’s house at midnight, wanting to borrow three loaves of bread. You say to him,
9“And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
11“You fathers—if your children ask*11:11 Some manuscripts add for bread, do you give them a stone? Or [if they ask]. for a fish, do you give them a snake instead?
