"And in praying do not heap up empty
phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think
that they will be heard for their many words.
Do not be like them, for your Father knows
what you need before you ask him. Pray then
like this: Our Father who art in heaven,
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 also have forgiven our
debtors; And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil." (1)
May our Father always hear us as we pray
the Master's words in union with His Spirit.
1. Matthew 6:7-11
