The Gift of Prayer

One day Jesus Christ was praying; and when He had ceased, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray as John taught his disciples.”

Jesus Christ said to them, “When you pray, say: Our Father Who art in the heavens, Hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Thine are the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”

Note: See the Gospels of Luke 11:1-4; Matthew 6:9-13.
