The Model Prayer

5″And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. 7And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. 

8”Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need before you ask Him. 9In this manner, therefore, pray: 

Our Father in Heaven 

Hallowed be Your name. 

10 Your kingdom come. 

Your will be done 

On earth as it is in heaven. 

11 Give us this day our daily bread. 

12 And forgive us our debts, 

As we forgive our debtors. 

13 And do not lead us into temptation, 

But deliver us from the evil one. 

For Yours is the kingdom and the 

Power and the glory forever. Amen. 

14”For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 6:5-14
