“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as (A)the Gentiles do, for (B)they think that they will be heard (C)for their many words. Do not be like them, (D)for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. (E)Pray then like this:

(F)“Our Father in heaven,
(G)hallowed be (H)your name.[a]
10 (I)Your kingdom come,
(J)your will be done,[b]
    (K)on earth as it is in heaven.
11 (L)Give us (M)this day our daily bread,[c]
12 and forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.

Footnotes

  1. Matthew 6:9 Or Let your name be kept holy, or Let your name be treated with reverence
  2. Matthew 6:10 Or Let your kingdom come, let your will be done
  3. Matthew 6:11 Or our bread for tomorrow

Ask, and It Will Be Given

(A)“Ask, (B)and it will be given to you; (C)seek, and you will find; (D)knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for (E)bread, will give him (F)a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If you then, (G)who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will (H)your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
