Teach Us to Pray

Luke 11:1-13
Jesus was praying in a certain place. He ceased.

A disciple: Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. 

Jesus: When ye pray, say:

Our Father which art in heaven, 

Hallowed be thy name. 

Thy kingdom come. 

Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. 

Give us day by day our daily bread. 

And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. 

And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. 

(This prayer is spoken in Matthew 6:9-13 in the Sermon on the Mount.)

Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go to him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give to you. Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he need.       
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him who knocks it shall be opened.       

If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? (These last verses are repeated in Matthew 7:7-1 in the Sermon on the Mount.)
