“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.
13 And (N)lead us not into temptation,
    but (O)deliver us from (P)evil.[d]

14 (Q)For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, 15 (R)but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
